Andro Wekua (b. 1977, Georgia). During the 1989 revolution in Georgia, Wekua witnessed the murder of his father, who was a local political activist. Today, Wekua lives and works in Zurich and Berlin. Using various media, his works explore the intersections between history, memory and myth, combining elements to create a complex environment. He is most known for his enigmatic wax figures, which are poised in impossible states of stagnation, completely detached from the reality surrounding them. Wekua’s work has been exhibited in leading art venues, including Palais de Tokyo, Paris and Hayward Gallery, London.
