New York City, NY
Projects 103, the first exhibition in the forty-five year history of the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series to take place a MoMA PS1, presents a site-specific sculpture by the Berlin-based, Georgian artist Thea Djordjadze.
Drawing on the visual language of architecture and functional design, Djordjadze creates sculptural environments that foreground the lasting legacy of Modernism while evoking the vernacular and folk traditions native to the Caucasus region in the Republic of Georgia.
For MoMA PS1, she will build a large-scale sculptural installation made especially for the museum’s ground floor, brick-walled, duplex gallery. Responding to the room’s exaggerated ceiling height, the work is inspired by a 12th century pharmacy located in the cave city of Vardzia, Georgia, pictured in a poster that hung in the artist’s childhood bedroom.
