Andro Wekua

The artist, who was born in Georgia in 1977, has lived in Germany and Switzerland for the last few years and is a master of insinuation. His drawings look like quickly scribbled notes, which in their intentional openness tell many a story. His collages are works marked by a particular, mysterious atmosphere. Wekua processes his memories of childhood in Georgia and connects them with images of daily life from "western" culture and the media world. He evokes a world full of longing, in which memories and fiction coalesce to form a new whole.
