Combining hand-held camera, drone footage, and 3D animation, Giorgi Gago Gagoshidze’s contribution to “Silent Works” – the film essay “The Invisible Hand of My Father” – portrays the artist’s father, a former contractor in the USSR, and a refugee after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. In his talk with exhibition co-curator Magdalena Taube the artist says: “The source for this film is the personal life of my father, Nugzari, and his right hand. His hand has been playing a crucial role in his economic and social life and has always ensured his family’s financial stability. The film traces a physical and symbolic transition of his right hand: how the transition has been affecting his socio-economic life in his journey throughout different political ideologies that are represented and governed by symbolic hands.” Look at an installation view of Giorgi Gago Gagoshidze’s contribution to “Silent Works” here.
