tezi gabunia is an artist from georgia whose methodology is called ‘falsification’ where he creates a reflection upon the basic features of the contemporary world. in 2011 he opened his painting studio and has produced over one-hundred paintings, as he has industrialized the process of art creation which currently permits him to publish a new production on the internet every two weeks.

 

‘put your head into gallery’ emphasizes the artist’s concept by triggering a dialogue about hyper-realistic issues in art. the interactive project consists in exact miniature copies of famous art exhibition spaces like the saatchi gallery, the tate modern, the louvre and the gagosian gallery, aiming to bring the galleries to the visitors and not the other way around. the concept of falsification is present when he presents a false exhibition and by scaling the spaces and creating exhibitions that don’t exist. people are encouraged to put their heads inside the scaled models were a picture is taken. the main technical support used during the production of models was later cutting technology materials included PVC, plexiglass, wooden paper, and two-component glue.
