Me and you, you and me

Gallery 4710 presents the duo show "Me and You, You and Me" by two artists of differentgeneration, Keti Kapanadze and Alexander Beglarishvili. The exhibition presents the artists’ recent works, united by the element steel. The exhibition is the combination of two independent artistic researches, who combine the exhibition as a one whole installation. The exhibition will open on Sunday, November 14 and will last until December 14. Keti Kapanadze (1962) was born in Tbilisi. While still a student at the Art Academy in Tbilisi, she produced her first conceptual graphical and photo works in 1983, she was the first conceptual artist in Georgia in Soviet times. Since that time her works are part of the permanent exhibition of the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the USSR at the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers, USA. From 1990 to 1999 she worked abroad, supported by scholarships from the Sheffield City Polytechnic, the cca Contemporary Art Center, Glasgow, the BAK Swiss Federal Foundation, Berne, and the IAAB Christoph Merian Stiftung, Basel. She also won First Prize in Photography awarded by the “Open Society Georgia” in 1997 in Tbilisi. She was also one of the editors of the Georgian art magazine “Signal” which she helped launch in 1998. In 2000 Keti left her country for Germany, supported by the Baumann Stiftung. In 2001, she was invited as Visiting Professor for the Painting Class a Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany. In 2007 she was awarded a scholarship by Cité des Arts in Paris, Ministry of Science, Research and Culture, Paris, France. Her works are in important European collections, such as: Museum Bochum; Stuttgart State Gallery; Ministry of Culture, Stuttgart;European Patent Office, München; State Art State Gallery Göppingen; MMoma Moscow. Today, Keti lives and works in Bonn, Germany. Alexander Beglarishvili (b. 1999) is a Visual artist. Currently a student at Städelschule, graduated from VA[A]DS (Visual arts and Design School at Free University). He mainly works on installations using textile and metal. Beglarishvili’s artistic practice is based around creating an emotional sanctuaries and safe spaces at various locations. Working on the contrasts of Eastern Orthodox practices and queer culture, his work functions as a personal guide book translating his environment to a more legible construct.

Keti Kapanadze

Me and you, you and me

Who am I, the one who sits in my body and relizes that she thinks, or the one who in the mirror calls her reflection myself. The world travels in a continuous stream of consciousness from outside to inside, from inside to outside, as if there are no walls, no obstacles, physical laws, or biological rules, from me to you, from you to me. And what is the difference then between us? Maybe my consciousness is yours and your body is mine. And if so, what will happen if I were you and you were me now.

Step over

Step over the curtain of physical rules.
There you will find the structures of numbers
Which through the infinite versions of probabilities.
Create that language thus the world speaks.

Alexander Beglarishvili

In defense of the opacity towards protrusion,
Denounce the tale of impartiality sheltering that which constitutes a moderate fancy, Instead – weave a thread of sheer compulsion,
Perhaps with a pinch of combustible inertia,
To plunge into the self-consuming vigor of momentary dedication
Defying the disgraceful plasticity of mildly detached, wellness laden, crystalline self-care.

And If, by chance, the relentlessness of my desire rings an alarming bell,
Prepare the armor of solid steel,
I will greet you in Organza.
