Over the past few years, Meggy Rustamova (°1985, Tbilisi, Georgia) has developed an interdisciplinary oeuvre consisting of photographic works, videos, installations and performances. Her work is a distinctly poetic look at the relationship between individual and collective memory, between language as communication and visual vocabulary. She searches for ways to translate contemporary social tendencies and issues into her own work, often by means of microhistories. Using images and text, she tells stories by way of association, exploring the boundary between fact and fiction. Equally characteristic of Rustamova’s work is the presence of nature and landscapes and the relationship between fauna and flora and mankind. The beauty of the often optimistic-looking images hides a certain melancholy or desire for utopia, an all too human tendency.
