Andro Wekua at Sprüth Magers London

Some Pheasants in Singularity is Andro Wekua's first exhibition at the gallery Sprüth Magers. For this show, Andro Wekua transforms the London gallery by installing a wall constructed of rough breeze blocks behind the large bay window of the gallery. The wall partially obscures the view into the gallery space, hiding a life-sized sculpture of an androgynous adolescent that is suspended from the ceiling of the main gallery room. The figure is both robotic and lifelike. The exhibition also features a group of paintings that combine portraiture, abstraction and figuration.

Andro Wekua was born in Sochumi, Georgia. He lives and works in Berlin and New York. His education includes National Art School, Sochumi, Georgia; Phil. Institute ‘Gogebaschwili’ in Tiblisi, Georgia; and Visual Art School in Basel, Switzerland. In 2011 he was nominated for Preis der Nationalgalerie für junge Kunst, Berlin (Germany).
