Thea Djordjadze


The sculptural works of Thea Djordjadze (b. 1971 in Tbilisi, living and working in Berlin) are based on the concept of instability and vulnerability; their appearance can be elegant and minimalist, or raw and amorphous, always in the balance between form and anti-form. Their simple materials, such as plaster, wood, stone, clay, glass, plastic foam, wire mesh, paper, metal rods, textiles and carpets, are found by the artist in the field of sculpture or in their everyday surroundings. The combination of hard materials and soft gestural treatment gives a tactile quality to the works, their arrangement in installations is always made on site, in a constant dialogue with the particular space. Her works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions, including Frieze Projects, London (2015); Georgian Pavilion, 55th Venice Biennale (2013); MUDAM, Luxembourg (2013); dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel (2012); Malmö Konstmuseum (2012); The Common Guild, Glasgow (2011); Kunsthalle Basel (2009); Kunstverein Nürnberg (2009); 5th Berlin Biennale (2008); Biennale de Lyon (2007); Studio Voltaire, London (2007); 50th Venice Biennale (2003); Bonner Kunstverein (2001). Her edition Ohne Titel (Untitled) for Neuer Berliner Kunstverein consists of three stones, which the artist has individually placed on supporting trestles, by which the stones gain something creature-like.
