DOTS New Collection Photographed By Atu Gelovani
Atu Gelovani was born in Tbilisi, Georgia in 1994. He works on various conceptual artworks along with experimental photography and installations. He graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, from which he gained Bachelor of Arts in the field of Architecture. In 2016 he received the grant and attended the course ‘Public Space’ led by feld72 Architects at Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts. With a conceptual approach, Gelovani tries to evolve forms as an abstract substance that are out of logical criteria, but are based on subjective associations, which incite the viewer to make new personal perceptions. His works precisely respond to the surrounding environment. Frequently concentrating on the shapes and materials reveals subtle minimalistic rhythm. By attempting distinctive experiments, he creates an aesthetics that unites most of his pieces. In 2016 his work ‘Dotted’ was featured in Der Greif Magazine ‘A Process 2’ during the Krakow Photomonth Festival, curated by Lars Willumeit. His works were exhibited in Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova, Poland and Austria.
