The STYX is a multimedia project that combines large-scale oil and acrylic paintings, ink drawings, video-sculpture and installation of Levan Songulashvili who, in recent years, has joined the grand list of artists choosing to reflect meditative consciousness.
The name of the project is connected to the mythological river and stands as a symbol of radical change and a movement from the visible world to the invisible realm. Consequently, the exposition is a kind of journey between the consciousness and unconscious of the artist himself.
The exhibition curator is one of the most influential British critics of the art-world, Mark Gisbourne, who came to Georgia for the project presentation.
The STYX project is organized by ERTI Gallery, supported by TBC Status and Rooms Hotels.
Legendary composer Giya Kancheli was among The STYX visitors. Inspired by one of Songulashvili’s painting series “Idem et Idem”, the composer entitled his recent musical piece for women’s choir and chamber orchestra with the same name.
UK-based celebrated singer, songwriter and musician, Katie Melua, also attended the exhibition with her manager, Sumit Bothra.
Melua shared her impressions and photos from the show on her official social media:
