Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili’s works stand at the confluence of digital and analog photography.

The images Alexi-Meskhishvili (*1979, Tbilisi) makes are straight snapshots or staged

photographs, which then undergo a process of altering by hand or digital means, or a mix of

both. Her subject matters are her friends, objects she finds and sets up in her studio, found

images she reworks, and her own reflections and shadows indicating auctorial presence.

Intimacy and the close-up being something very particular to Alexi-Meskhishvili‘s works,

she lets her subjective point of view overlap with our own, engaging us in her interaction with her

subjects. And even when, in blurs of light and color, the abstract prevails, traces of reality are

always woven into the fabric of the image. They begin but never aim to complete a narrative –

rather like disorienting, fleeting thoughts that suggest but do not linger. These traces are,

physically and metaphorically, impressions: fingerprints on the negative, barely recognizable

pale reflections of the sky on the glossy surface of a photograph, a face emerging from bright

flashes of color. Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili‘s photographs allude to the possibility of a space

behind the flat surface, an interiority over-saturated with images – which could also be our

own. (MIHAELA CHIRIAC)
