Back wall project "Verkleidung"
Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili (*1979) presents an ensemble of large-scale, quasi-abstract, almost diaphanous photographic images specifically developed for the outdoor context of the back wall of Kunsthalle Basel. The images are, as with so much of the Georgian-born artist’s practice, a mix of straight photographs, composite images created by superimposing photographic negatives, and explosions of chroma produced in darkroom processes. Here her images are printed on a PVC mesh often used to conceal building scaffolding. They expand the artist’s persistent interest in looking, deftly, at the minutia of everyday life as it is captured and shot through with transparency and light.
