Irina Gabiani

Introduction

Born 1971, Tbilisi (Georgia), lives and works in Luxembourg

 

After studying at the Academy of Art in Tbilisi, Irina moved to Amsterdam where where she studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy

Irina Gabiani works with drawing, painting, installation and sculpture as well as video and performance.

The Universe in its holistic essence is the focus of the research of the artist according to whom we all belong to a unique system, to a "big organism" imagined as a kind of complex, interrelated chain, of which we and everything around us, are a part.

Her works have been shown on an international level, either in galleries, institutions, museums, or in festivals and biennials (including the Venice Biennale).
