Thea Djordjadze

Born 1971
Hometown Tbilisi, Georgia
Lives and Works Berlin, Germany

Combining classic sculptural materials such as metal, plaster, and wood, with the less traditional foam, linoleum, and found objects, Thea Djordjadze creates spatially aware installations that evoke a quiet tension between design and abstraction, process and product. Originally trained as a painter, Djordjadze studied under Rosemarie Trockel at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, an influence that is apparent in her spatial compositions. Challenging the conventions of display, institutional and otherwise, Djordjadze’s pieces contain complex and often oblique reference—abstracted motifs from cinema, architecture, and literature can be found in her astute sculptural arrangements.


Djordjadze’s recent exhibitions include the Georgian Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale; Kölnischer Kunstverein, Germany, Malmö Konsthall, Sweden, Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland, and a major solo installation at Documenta 13 in Kassel, Germany. Selected group exhibitions include the 2003 Venice Biennale, the 5th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art in 2008, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, Hayward Gallery, London, the Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.
