About Irina Gabiani

After studying at the Academy in Tbilisi, Irina moved to Amsterdam where she studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (“Free direction” and “Contemporary jewellery”). Irina has lived and worked in Luxembourg since 1998.

The Universe in its holistic essence is the focus of the research of the artist according to whom we all belong to a unique system, to a "big organism" imagined as a kind of complex, interrelated chain, of which we, and everything around us, are a part.

Trying to see beyond what we can perceive with our eyes, going beyond the vision of the world as we use to know, the artist researches the innumerable similarities between the infinitely big and the infinitely small within matter. The two "worlds" look as though they mirror one another. The more we know matter and understand its complexity which escapes us at a simple glance, the more the infinitely small leads us to the universe. For this reason, especially in her recent works, images of the micro and macro universes appear one next to the other and, sometimes, the images from the micro exceed the dimension of those from the macro. Discovering infinite worlds within our every-day surroundings leads the artist to believe that there are other parallel realities in time and space.

In her works, Irina uses drawing, painting, photography and sculpture, often in porcelain or ceramics. 

Her works have been shown in Italy, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Georgia, Russia and Australia.
