Harkawik is pleased to present Ani Gurashvili's second exhibition with the gallery and her first in Los Angeles. Scattered Gems is an exhibition marked by the departure of the figure and the exploration of the interstitial setting between presence and absence. The feeling evoked is like that of an audience member waiting for the commencement of a grand performance, their eyes trained hazily on a spotlit velvet curtain. One waits for the curtain to be drawn, for the action to be revealed, but in those moments of wait, light drips from the barrier between the viewer and the drama of the future. The curtain becomes a veil, the veil, a psychic meniscus. The proscenium in slick, repetitive, orbular symmetry is transformed into an echo of a scream in a theater thick with potential.
