SCULPTURE: Thea Djordjadze interview at ACCA 2012 (accaonline.org.au)

(accaonline.org.au) Berlin based artist Thea Djordjadze sculptures are situated between form and anti-form, a combination of stable structures and fragile, gestural renderings typically exhibited together in a carefully choreographed setting. Here, she speaks about her practice prior to the opening of Sculptural Matter at ACCA.
