Vajiko Chachkiani’s film Winter which was not there (2017) is presented at the Crawford Art Gallery to coincide with Recasting Canova, our bicentenary celebration of the Canova Casts, the prestigious gift that forms the basis of the gallery’s collection.

Vajiko Chachkiani works in film, object making and installations delving into human perception and the culture of remembrance, between the reality of the outside world and the inner human psyche. In Winter which was not there, a man watches a sculpture of a man being hoisted out of the sea. Though the subject of the sculpture is not identified, the classic heroic monument bares a strange, somewhat uncanny likeness to the man watching the event. The stone figure is then attached to the man’s truck and a strange narrative ensues as we watch the middle aged man drive, until dusk, through landscapes and ultimately urban settings, alongside his vigilant dog. In Chachkhiani’s film the sculptural object is the protagonist, we watch in curious disbelief as this stoic character is mercilessly ‘disassembled’.
