Put Your Head Into Gallery evolved from the previous project – False Exhibition, which was created in order to support translation of the artist main concept falsification into objective world. In this project artist presents his own exhibition in the scaled Saatchi Gallery space – the exhibition, which has never existed. Convenient feature of the model provided an ability for everyone to visit Tezi Gabunia’s exhibition at Saatchi Gallery. In this case, the model is presented as a virtual message. This kind of innovation makes an event available for a large audience, on the other hand, it’s a manifestation of hyper-realistic issues. The first event was highly recognized as well in Local, also in international media. This triggered the project to evolve and represent a direct reflection on falsification and hiper-realism.
