The Universe in its holistic essence is the focus of the research of Irina Gabiani according to whom we all belong to a unique system, to a “big organism” imagined as a kind of complex, interrelated chain, of which we, and everything around us, are a part.

Trying to see beyond what we can perceive with our eyes, going beyond the vision of the world as we use to know, the artist researches the innumerable similarities between the infinitely big and the infinitely small within matter.

Irina Gabiani works with drawing, painting, installation, video and performance.
