False Exhibition


Tezi Gabunia

Saatchi Gallery - Room Model SC1:50. PVC, Plexiglass, Wooden paper

False Exhibition integrates Tezi Gabunia’s two main concepts – falsification and industrialization of the creating process. In the following project, the artist reflects on academic drawing. Using Webcamtoy and Adobe Illustrator traditional painting prospect is translated to cyber language, which is followed by industrialized production of artwork, which is exhibited in the analogical model of Saatchi Gallery room. The model is presented as a virtual message. This kind of innovation makes an event available for a large audience, on the other hand, it’s a manifestation of hipper realistic issues.
