Thea Djordjadze’s artistic practice can be understood as a process of continually reusing, reconfiguring and rearranging objects. Starting on 10 September 2020, the Gropius Bau presents existing and newly created works by the Berlin-based artist, whose sculptures and interventions engage in a dialogue with the historic building.

Influenced in equal measure by historical artefacts and concepts of modern art and architecture, Thea Djordjadze’s sculptural works are characterised by formal ruptures and an idiosyncratic material aesthetic. By combining materials such as plaster, metal, rubber, textiles, wood or papier-mâché, Djordjadze creates fragmentary spatial settings in which she reformulates the classic display – vitrine, plinth, framing and pedestal – as a recurrent theme in her work.
