The Georgian pavilion at this year’s Venice Biennale has been named among the best from central and eastern European states by Blok Magazine, with the installation by artist Anna K.E. finding its spot in the selection.


The contemporary work, titled REARMIRRORVIEW Simulation is Simulation, is Simulation, is Simulation and placed on view for visitors of the major annual event, was found by the magazine’s editors interesting enough to warrant a place in their shortlist, published on Wednesday.


In the profile for the installation, the Blok piece describes the architectural work with steel framework and coloured tiles, creating an impression of “digital pixels at low resolution” (preview by Creative Georgia).


Equal parts public stage, ascending and descending tribunal platform, communal fountain, and sculptural object of observation, her structure recalls a matrix of digital pixels, transporting viewers into an environment that recalls a sleek synthetic model.
