EXHIBITION: Georgia - Myth and Reality. Photographies by Wolfgang Korall (Germany) and Guram Tisbakhashvili (Georgia)
Photo Exhibition Georgia - Myth and Reality was scheduled to be opened on September 29 at 18:00 hrs at Shota Amiranashvili Art Museum of Georgia. Photo works by two photographers such as Wolfgang Korall (Germany) and Guram Tisbakhashvili (Georgia) was be presented at the exhibition.
Georgia is the common topic for both of the artists. The title of the exhibition was generated from photographers' different attitude to the work: Wolfgang Korall has singled out the topic myth and spirituality in Georgia, while Guram Tisbakhashvili picks out everyday reality.
The exhibits by Wolfgang Korall were made in 2008-2009 and it's a kind of continuation of his previous works Svaneti (1984-1988). The new series on Georgia appeared in 2008 within the Meeting with Pirosmani project. In the course of the project two photo tours to Georgia (Tusheti, Khevsureti, Khevi, Kakheti, Racha, Lechkhumi, Imereti, Meskheti, Javakheti, Trialeti, Kartli, Tbilisi) have been planned. The photos, unlike the Svaneti series (analog photo) are made with a digital camera and printed as Lambda print.
Photos by Guram Tsibakhashvili have been made in the last five years and they represent a kind of diary. These are documentary photos without a topic, featuring Georgia's life in a fragmentary way. These are personal impressions on random events. The photos are made with a digital camera and printed on water color paper through Inkjet printing.
The exhibition was scheduled to last until October 19, 2010. The event was organized by the Georgian-German Society.
Partners: Goethe Institute in Georgia and the Art Museum of Georgia.
