Put Your Head into Gallery is an interactive art project from Tezi Gabunia which presents four different models of famous galleries’ rooms. The installation allows visitors to become part of the exhibition by putting their heads into miniature models of world famous art galleries complete with exhibitions of different artists in the spaces: Saatchi Gallery (Tezi Gabunia), The Louvre (Rubens), Tate Modern (Hirst), Gagosian Gallery (Liechtenstein).

Gabunia explores the idea of falsification and hyperrealism within the art world. Under a concept of falsification, Tezi Gabunia presents his false exhibition at Saatchi Gallery. The second stage involved the scaled copies of famous gallery rooms created using laser cutting technology and PVC and plexiglass allowing the participant to become part the exhibits themselves – conceptually making art accessible to all.
