Artist: Gio Sumbadze

Feb 02 - Apr 02 2016

Gio Sumbadze is a Georgian multimedia artist living in Tbilisi. His practice encompasses collage, graphic design, photography, sculpture, and video installation. Sumbadze’s artworks focus on architecture and the structure of natural forms, and specifically architectural planning that mirrors or confronts nature. Sumbadze represented Georgia at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013 in which he created a “parasitic” addition onto an existing Venetian building titled Kamikaze Loggia, referencing the common practice of extending pre-existing structures in Georgia. He is a graduate of the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts.
