Autumn Print (2023)

Every season, Rob Hornstra selects an image from his archive and makes it available as an exclusive handmade C-print (36 x 42 cm / 14.2 x 16.5 in). The number of buyers determines the print run, up to a maximum of 25. Once the season is over or print sold out, the image is no longer reprinted. This offer runs until 31 December 2023. Prints will be shipped in January 2024.

Anyone passing by the former Abkhazian seaside towns of Gagra and Pitsunda cannot overlook them: Georgian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli’s extraordinarily beautifully designed bus stops, created in his earlier years. In the surrounding area, everything seems fallen apart, but the bus stops based on the shape of shells, miraculously survived the 1992-93 war. Tsereteli cared little for functionality.

If his bus stop design did not provide shelter from rain for passengers, Tsereteli felt that was not his problem.

The sculptor and architect was criticised by many throughout his career, not only for his pompous and kitsch-like structures, but also for his close involvement with the Russian government to this day. The beautiful bus stops in Abkhazia cannot do anything about that.
