Thea Djordjadze regularly addresses questions of architecture, design and methods of display through installations that combine everyday objects, unconventional substances, and art and industrial materials. Her exhibition at Sprüth Magers—the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles—extends the artist’s investigations into the legacies of twentieth-century modernism, and the ways in which context affects the viewing, understanding and experience of art.
Thea Djordjadze is a Berlin-based artist whose work has been presented in solo exhibitions worldwide, including most recently at Portikus, Frankfurt (2018), Pinakothek der Moderne, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, Munich (2017), Vienna Secession (2016), and MOMA PS1 (2016), as well as the Venice Biennale (2013 and 2015) and Documenta 13 (2012).
