Maia Naveriani, a London based Georgian artist, will be exhibiting jointly with Maya Sumbadze in the Riverside Studios Gallery from 26th – 30th September to tie in with the 3rd London BGS Georgian Film Festival. Future Wolves and Chicks So Far is a series of large pencil drawings exploring the female subject through the artists own cultural memory fragments as well as the contemporary socio-cultural ‘jungle’: ‘As a woman artist I have an unavoidable instinctive tendency to first of all address the queries about female identity and consciousness, and its relevance and impact in a contemporary context of dissolved values and ideologies, to reflect on the endless attempts of many “Little Red Riding Hoods” to leave home, walk through the threatening forest, swallow a wolf (and a grandmother)…and never look back…’ Here is link to a CV and some images.
Maia Naveriani (1966,Tbilisi) has lived and worked in London since 1990 having studied at the Tbilisi State Academy of Art 1985-1990. She has exhibited in many cities including London, New York, Amsterdam, Bologna, Wiesbaden, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Antwerp and Liverpool.
The exhibition is being sponsored by the cARTveli group established to promote Georgian artists on the international art scene.
