Text: Meggy Rustamova (EN)

Meggy Rustamova’s (b. 1985) practice explores films and spatial installations, in which she incorporates photographs, essays and audio material; often the work has a performative character. Concerned with the relations between individual and collective memory, language and human behaviour, her works look for ways to translate the current matters and phenomena in the world.
Being a descendant of an Assyrian minority in Georgia, phenomena of ethnicity, displacement and belonging, Meggy's mother tongue that she spoke as a child but has since forgotten, are ever present in her work. 

The book HORAIZON is conceived as an encyclopaedia in which the work of the past 10-12 years is listed in lemmas.
The title of the book, 
HORAIZON, refers to the phonetic pronunciation of the English word ‘horizon’, the boundary line on which the earth’s surface and the sky seem to touch. The horizon, interpreted as ‘boundary’ or ‘line’, is equally perceptible in language, when reading between the lines, or when travelling between international borders. The works suggest a longing for what lies behind the horizon and invite the viewer to make an imaginary journey.
