I am a queer Georgian artist, based in London.
In 2017, I made my first short experimental film which premiered at the Berlin Porn Film Festival. The film was made from a need to deal with the inner world rather than the outer world that saturated my daily life as a journalist.
After making this film, which explored female sexuality, photography became a medium for artistic expression and I started photographing nudes, culminating in self-portraits photographed during the first lockdown in 2020.
In my photographic practice I am drawn to a visual language that celebrates fluidity and allows the subject to navigate the space, rather than be fixed by the gaze of the photographer.
I have been photographing nudes by focusing on the stories that emerge through gesture, posture, choreography and the blurred lines of the gender binary.
