Thea Djordjadze’s artistic practice can be understood as a process of continually reusing, reconfiguring and rearranging objects. Starting on 19 September, 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. Starting on 10 September, the Gropius Bau will present existing and newly created works by the Berlin-based artist in its spaces, among them the so-called Schliemann Saal, once home to Heinrich Schliemann’s excavated archaeological findings between 1881 and 1885. Drawing on the history of the Gropius Bau, Djordjadze’s works and interventions will engage in a dialogue with these historical spaces. The exhibition marks the beginning of a series of artistic presentations dealing with the history of archaeological exhibitions at the Gropius Bau.
