ASPEN, CO.- The Aspen Art Museum presents the first North American museum solo exhibition of the artwork of Thea Djordjadze. The exhibition will remain on view through Sunday, July 14, 2013.

Originally trained as a painter, Berlin-based artist Djordjadze is best known for creating sculptural installations that combine found and constructed elements in carefully choreographed settings, which employ materials ranging from the elegant to the everyday. Relying on a resolutely site-specific approach, Djordjadze’s objects might be made (or, as is often the case, partially made) in the studio, only to become fully formed during the process of installation. Just as her works are adapted to the spaces in which they are installed, so those spaces are—in a kind of dialogue of materials—transformed by the works they contain.

Playing with the boundary between form and anti-form—as rigid, linear elements are combined with rough, amorphous forms within installations often suggesting fragmentary arrangements of furniture and other functional objects—Djordjaze’s work oscillates between such categories as abstraction and decoration, model and reality, process and product. And, while her works may develop out of her interests in cinema, architecture, and literature, their references remain oblique, in effect setting a mood rather than telling a story.

Thea Djordjadze (b. 1971, Tbilisi, Georgia) lives and works in Berlin. Recent exhibitions include the Kölnischer Kunstverein, Malmö Konsthall, Kunstverein Lingen Kunsthalle, Kunstverein Nurnberg, Kunsthalle Basel, and The Common Guild, Glasgow, and a major solo installation at dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany. Selected group exhibitions include the 2003 Venice Biennale, 2008 Lyon Biennale, and the 5th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art in 2008, as well as exhibitions at Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Hayward Gallery, London; Contemporary Art Museum St.Louis; Sculpture Centre, New York (2011); and ACCA, Melbourne. Djordjadze’s work will be featured in the Georgian Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale.
