New York’s Gladstone Gallery will present Georgian artist Andro Wekua’s A Dog’s Fidelity from 26 January.

Known for his multi-part installations, in A Dog’s Fidelity Wekua brings together a body of portraits and seascapes, inspired by the mythical figure of the icon, and drawing on the collage practice that is central to his work. The installation sees Wekua work through layers of meaning and negotiate the relationship between fiction and reality.

“Through a practice that includes film, sculpture, and collage, Wekua works in the ambiguous half-light of memory, fantasy, and history. He offers fragmented narratives, part objects, and doubled figures as meta-fictions of a self that skid against autobiographical and historical specificity,” reads a statement on the gallery’s website.

A Dog’s Fidelity will be on show at Gladstone 64 in New York from 26 January — 25 February.
