»I am interested in expressing the artist’s voice not through the images I use, but through techniques and language.« Koka Ramishvili

Häusler Contemporary is pleased to present latest works by Geneva based artist Koka Ramisvhili who constantly fathoms the border areas of different artistic genres. For our show, the artist specifically designed an overall installation that includes current black-and-white photographs and «sculptural paintings». «Independent Organism II» is an exhibition within an exhibiton, an insert into the current show «Trouvailles» uniting paintings by David Reed and Richard Allen Morris. Due to the wide interest this show will be extended until the end of March 2017.

What is it that makes a picture a picture? How do different artistic genres relate in this matter? And how can the borderlines between these categories be eliminated? These are the questions that have been playing a key role within the work of Koka Ramishvili (*1957 in Tbilisi, GE, lives in Geneva, CH) from the very beginning. Ever since, he skillfully acts in different media such as video, painting, drawing, sculpture and installation.

His last solo show at Häusler Contemporary Zurich took place three years ago. We now are delighted to present an insight into the artist’s current creation. For our gallery, Ramishvili arranged an exciting overall installation consisting of selected new photographs and objects.
