Nana (Nanuka) is a Georgian born artist living and working in Los Angeles, Ca. Since her childhood she is working in media from painting and collage to sculpture and film, all of which draw profoundly on her deeply Georgian soul. In navigating the tenuous path of her dual cultural identity she asserts the transformative possibilities of finding beauty amid ruins, making something out of nothing - a cross-referencing of images that are fiercely nostalgic for a heroic and romantic dream world.
Since 2002 Nana's been working as the liaison of the Tula Tea Room at the Museum of Jurassic Technology and the Borzoi Cabinet Theater, her work harmonizes with the vision of the Museum's filmic aspirations of limning the culture and tradition of Georgia for audiences worldwide. She also shows her work in exhibitions and film festivals, Highlights include International Festival of Contemporary Art in Georgia, FESTiNOVA; TOMORROWLAND: CalArts in Moving Pictures, The Museum of Modern Art, NYC, 2006; Fragments from a Lovers Discourse, Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater, 2006; Over Here-There, The Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University, Stanford University 2002; and worldwide in Holland, France, China, Spain, Norway, Germany, and Russia.…Read More
