Andro Wekua (born in Georgia 1977, lives and works in Berlin) has been described as a master of suggestion. Wekua finds his drawn, collaged or sculptural images are located in a no man’s land between East and West, aesthetic exactness and improvisation, confidence and melancholy. His highly visual scripts play with his past and fictionalize it.
The SI Reading Room is proud to present a selection of Wekua’s books and editions, which have never been displayed together. In his use of printing techniques the artist is obsessed with refinement. Some of his lithographs build upon on no less than ten different color plates. A large variety of books accompanies his artistic production and include collaborations with Rita Ackermann, Boris Groys and Ketuta Alexi.
