Friday 30 January, 7pm
Please join curator David Lillington for a tour of our exhibition Unwheeled showing Gia Edzgveradze, Tamara K.E. and Maia Naveriani
Edzgveradze, K.E. and Naveriani make work about meaning: the meaning of images, of signs, of language, of 'the cultural forest', which, as Naveriani says, fascinates because it is impenetrable. And about the 'human theatre' — they see all art, including painting, as performative. They have known each other since the 1980s. They left Georgia around the time of the fall of the Berlin Wall, K.E. and Edzgveradze to Germany and Naveriani to the UK. They have remained close and still in a sense represent a group — as they once really did, when in the 1980s Edzgveradze formed a number of artists around him into the 'Everything is Alright' group. They have all had success on the continent and in the US but have exhibited little here in the UK. This is an opportunity to see their work as well as an exhibition-reunion of the three artists. Unwheeled has in this aspect of their reunion in London a little of the road-movie about it.
