Blue Chip Representation
Biography

Although Berlin-based artist Thea Djordjadze works in a number of mediums, she is best known for her sculptures and installations. Combining traditional materials, such as plaster and wood, with more mundane elements, including foam, sponge, and linoleum, the artist creates minimalist, unsettling environments that appear clinical, domestic, or sexual in nature—eerie entities that recall Eastern Bloc architecture. Djordjadze was mentored by and occasionally collaborates with the renowned feminist artist Rosemarie Trockel, and she creates pieces that explicitly recall works from pop culture, science, and literature. The sculptor also draws on her experience growing up in the formerly Communist-ruled Georgia in her work. “I see my practice as a reorganizing of time,” the artist has said.
