Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili (b. 1979, Tbilisi, Georgia) grew up in New York and currently lives in Berlin. She is interested in “the sensation of losing boundaries,” which she relates to her experience as an adolescent immigrant as well as to “the sensation of being a new mother.” As a photographer, she attempts to reach a post-verbal state in her work by destabilizing the boundaries between medium and motif. This print is an example of the way in which she transforms analog negatives into vibrant digitally manipulated archival prints with hand-incised scratch marks. These multilayered interventions convey an intuitive and experimental choreography of surfaces where she tests the conditions of flatness and depth in photographic representation. Alexi-Meskhishvili received a BFA in photography from Bard College in 2003, where she honed methods of analog color photography studying with Stephen Shore. Her recent shows include solo exhibitions at the Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne; Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York; Micky Schubert, Berlin; and Galerie Frank Elbaz, Paris; as well as group exhibitions at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; the Sprengel Museum, Hannover; the Kunstverein Hannover; and the New Museum Triennial (2015), New York. This work is offered as an extension of her upcoming exhibition Boiled Language at LC Quiesser Gallery, Tbilisi.
