Giorgio Celin's figurative paintings explore themes including migration, belonging, relationships and nostalgia. Celin’s work is influenced by his experience as a Colombian migrant who has lived in several European cities. He examines issues surrounding displacement and what it means to feel as though you don’t belong in any one geographical location.

TAMARA KVESITADZE

Embrace, 2019
Bronze
23 x 13 x 12 cm | 9 x 5 x 4 3/4 in
Ed.: 9 + 2AP

The work “Man and Woman” by Tamara Kvesitadze presents the interpenetration of two bodies, masculine and feminine, in a never ending story of love and separation, of pleasure and suffering. The figures incessantly approach, unite with, then move away from each other in a kinetic loop turning at their own axis and connected to one base. In "The Embrace" a woman is divided into parts referencing all her social and psychological states. Kvesitadze is not trying to be forcefully innovating in her creations, rather going for spare structures and nuanced study of human emotions.

Within the work of Rusudan Khizanishvili we are presented with intertwined figures and animals who act as symbolic door handles between cultures, nations, times and identities. Influences from traditional Georgian architecture, myths, the self, and the female form are apart of her investigation into our innate individuality and interconnectedness as human beings.

Paris Giachoustidis's socially relevant works aim to sharpen our perception when dealing with images from mass media. Many of my works are based on external content from the Internet, from historical recordings from image databases or private photographs from social media, edited into thematic series and distorted in order to express within new meanings or interpretation through critic and humor.

The newest works of Franziska Klotz focus on the self-dramatizations of young girls in online subcultures. “Despite the apparent differences of such ‘heterotopias, the common display of the girls’ vulnerable facades reveals the function of these spaces: they serve as places of escape in which the relationship of the ego to the body and analogously to the social fabric is acted out, and thus also as waiting rooms for entry into the adult world.”

IVANA DE VIVANCO

Venus and Adonis, 2018
Oil on canvas
260 x 240 cm

The works of Ivana de Vivanco challenge preconceived notions of gender, Western-history and colonialism as well as power in order to rewrite the history of marginalized groups. The images include great mythological tales - the work presented references the tale of Venus and Adonis. Her theatrical stagings unfold an emotional intensity through a strong color palette, shrill contrasts, and sophisticated compositions that lend emphasis to her artistic concerns.
