Meggy Rustamova

Opening exhibition Light Displacement

Flemish/Georgian artist Meggy Rustamova translates issues like displacement, language and identity into installations and videos, in which she combines audio and photography.

For her first solo exhibition in the Netherlands, Meggy Rustamova (°1985) presents videowork and a new installations in which she combines photography and audio. Rustamova was born in Georgia but moved to Belgium via the Netherlands with her mother at the age of eight. While never referring explicitly to her origins, themes such as language, identity and displacement are central to her work. She approaches these subjects sometimes through performances, and at others using photos, sound installations or video.

 

In The Netherlands, Rustamova exhibited at International Film Festival Rotterdam, Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht and Jan van Eyck Academy. Now it is time for her first solo exhibition in the Netherlands, at De Brakke Grond. 

 

The official opening takes place on the 9th of September and is free of charge.
