The best social conditions...
Tamar Chaduneli

17-20 May 2018

Tamar Chaduneli’s new work presented under the title ‘the best social conditions are those under which it is possible to lose one’s identity.obj’ consists of complex arc construction of plexiglass, ply wood and a group of paintings and objects. It continues Tamar’s artistic vocabulary and further develops the grammar of using certain materials.

Artist redefines architecture of space to create her own viewpoint. She playfully works on the borderline of digital technologies and traditional forms and addresses the question of generative quality of culture.

Tamar Chaduneli is a Georgian visual artist, born in 1991 in Rustavi, Georgia. She graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of arts - Media Art Faculty in 2013 and the same year studied at non formal master program of mediation at Center of Contemporary Art - Tbilisi (CCA-T).

Together with group ‘block 21’ Tamar is co-founder of artist in residency program in Rustavi. Opening of the residency space was part of Tbilisi Triennial program.

On conceptual bases her work can be characterized by combination of different media such as sculpture, painting, drawing, video game, animation, procedural installations. Her works investigate language of visual culture and image production. Emulating forms and constructions of everyday object design and architecture from memory and imagination point towards impact specific to surfeit of images we see all around us.
