"Like Boxers Who Never Went Into The Ring"
February 10 – May 6, 2017
Popiashvili Gvaberidze Window Project is pleased to present Berlin based Georgian artist, Vajiko Chachkhiani, with an installation titled Like Boxers Who Never Went Into The Ring.
The installation is a family portrait of seven heads cast in concrete.
At the artist’s request pieces of an obscure building’s foundation were pulverized, processed and mixed with concrete to cast the seven portraits. However, the faces of concrete heads are sliced off making it impossible to identify them. These erased facial features transform the family portrait into a universal, abstract family portrait.
