Grigory Regini

More Private Space Popiashvili Gvaberidze Window Project is pleased to present Gregory Regini’s photo installation More Private Space. With this presentation in the window the artist emphasizes the subject of the private space in our culture. Installation includes two photos. One of them features an extravagantly dressed young man with his face pressed against the glass. His funky outfit symbolizes free will and self-expression, while the second photo portrays a classically dressed man who is sitting comfortably in a chair with a shopping bag over his head. By juxtaposing and displaying these two photos in windows the artist seems to make a statement that the private space offered by our surroundings is never enough. Gregory Regini was born in Sukhumi in 1984. He lives and works in Tbilisi. His name is well known in the Georgian fashion world. Regini’s photographs appeared in Georgian magazines Me, Tskheli Shokoladi, Anabechdi, Amarta, as well as in Ukrainian publications of L'Officiel and Harper's Bazaar. He has worked as a designer in 2002-2003 and later from 2006 started photographing for the magazines. Regini acted as artistic director of young designer’s competition Be Next in 2009-2013. According to the artist, he got his education at a design academy, and gained his experience as a photographer at glossy magazines. Gregory Regini intentionally references an open double page from a glossy magazine in his current installation in the window project. More Private Space is Regini’s first public art piece. Gregory Regini’s previous exhibitions include 12 Days, his personal exhibition dedicated to Sergo Paradjanov (The National Gallery of Georgia, 2010) and participation in a group show “Art Georgia” (Paris, 2013).
