Andro Wekua

Workshop Report

24 11 2009 03 01 2010

Andro Wekuas work suggestively mingles drawing, painting, collage and sculpture. It is constructed of narratives which are centred on their subject yet remain open. Wekua situates his visual universe in a no mans land, somehere between East and West, between aesthetical precision and improvisation. Reflecting both the melancholy of a childhood in a post-communist country and the tragic sense of history, Wekua explores the polysemy of images, media and signs of his generation.

Andro Wekua, born in 1977 in Georgia, lives and works in Zurich and Berlin.
