Shadows on the Facade by Andro Wekua
Published by Nieves (2007)
Georgian born and raised artist Andro Wekua (Sochumi, 1977), and now Zurich based, has been depicted as a master of suggestion, of small gestures. His narrative structures are deadly focused on their targets, yet remain astonishingly open. Wekua locates his drawn, collaged or sculptural images in a No-Man’s Land between East and West, aesthetic exactness and improvisation, confidence and melancholy. He creates his own highly visual scripts which play with his past and stylize it into fiction.
