Giorgi Khaburzania: Music of Being at Galleri Image

Giorgi Khaburzania at Galleri Image/ Denmark / Århus
When: Aug 30, 2013 - Oct 6, 2013
Between Turkey and Russia, on the Black Sea shore and under the Caucasus Mountains is Georgia. This is where Asia meets Europe, here 'the East' becomes 'the West', and here you'll find a society, whose characteristic location in the gap between two continents has affected the nation's identity and self-understanding. Despite still more noticeable attempts of empowerment the society is characterized by having been under the influence of especially the Soviet Union, a circumstance which, like the significant location at the border between 'east' and 'west' is reflected in the contemporary Georgian art scene.
Through video, photography and sculpture, and based on Eastern philosophical thinking and with an elemental interest in existential themes such as loneliness, longing, human relationships and the search for meaning, Giorgi Khaburzania examines divergent conceptions of human values, social structures and hierarchies.
It is on his physical travels around the world as well as through spiritual enterings into himself that Khaburzania finds inspiration for his art. With a quiet and rather meditative expression Khaburzania interprets the relationship between the human mind and the physical world.

The exhibition at Galleri Image is the result of a longer journey to the Middle East and Central Asia, which Khaburzania did in 2007 and 2008. Danish artist Lasse Krog Møller has made a map of the journey, which will be part of the exhibition.
