Project Description

In the installation Breaking News: The Flooding of the Louvre, artist Tezi Gabunia uses a method of realistic “falsification” to trigger a dialogue about the boundaries between fact and fiction. Inspired by the laissez-faire coverage of the 2018 flooding in Paris, Gabunia’s work addresses how media often fails to portray the real impact of natural disasters and often downplays the significance of these destructive events.
