Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili (born in 1979, Tbilisi, Georgia; grew up in New York; lives and works in Berlin)
Having studied with Stephen Shore in New York, Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili is fully conversant with the methods of analog color photography: From operating the camera to manipulating the negative and negotiating the intricacies of lab technology, she controls all stages of the process, intervening with sometimes extensive, sometimes minimal and barely perceptible alterations, collaging, enhancing negatives with scratch marks, and experimenting with cameraless techniques. Frequently, she digitizes analog images for further editing. Her recent solo exhibitions include 'Hollow Body', Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, and Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne; and 'I Move Forward, I Protozoan, Pure Protein', Micky Schubert, Berlin. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Bridget Donahue, New York; FRAC Haute-Normandie, Sotteville-lès-Rouen, France; Kunstverein Hannover, Hannover; Casey Kaplan, NYC and New Museum, New York, for the 2015 New Museum Triennial, amongst others. A solo show will open at galerie frank elbaz, Paris in May 2019.
