Ramaz Goiati
(1966, Georgia)

Traditionally trained sculptor based in Amsterdam, Goiati breathes a renewed sense of life into classical mediums such as bronze and stone, incorporating his sculptures in spatial installations. The basis for his work in recent years has been his native language, and the concept of (mis)communication in general. The impression of unintelligible or almost unidentifiable abstract objects, manifested before us in variable yet specific human scales, presenting a dimension we tend to take for granted. The Georgian script, standing the test of millennia, may appear isolated if not alien to some, forms a bridge connecting the different times and formulating the remarkable developments of mankind. Simultaneously hand-gestures help navigate us through ambiguous and up for ever-shifting cultural interpretations.
