Now in its 13th year, Artpark’s Fairy House Festival welcomes visitors of all ages to marvel at fairy house creations by professional and community artists. Interact with the whimsical and enchanting Artpark Fairies and roaming musicians outfitted in new costume creations by artist and designer Uta Bekaia of Tbilisi, Georgia.

Uta Bekaia is a Georgian-born multimedia artist currently residing and working in New York and Tbilisi. After studying Industrial Design at Tbilisi Mtsire Academy, he debuted as an artist at AMA (Avant-Guard Fashion Assembly) with a sculptural performance. He creates performances and installations inhabited with wearable sculptures, exploring his historical-cultural background, genetic codes and cycles of the universe. Currently, he is a resident artist at ART OMI, New York, and in partnership with ERTI Gallery, Tbilisi.

Inspired by ancient mythology, fairy tales, Italian Baroque, and Georgian Dada, Bekaia with his exuberant, sculptural costumes, reinvents and re-stages long lost, never-before-documented rituals. Believing in genetical transferability of communal memory, Bekaia attempts to re-connect with ancient knowledge and impregnate it with his own experiences and new meaning.
