Selected Works

Exoticus Animalia


My video project is about being foreign - an eternal foreigner phenomenon. No matter how long I live here in Germany, will I always remain an "exotic animal"?

A self-portrait of myself served as the source material for this video. I edited it in a program called Videoleap using various AI tools. In addition to my picture, I entered various terms from my text "Exoticus Animalia" in the AI video editing program, whereby AI generated the "matching" pictures and videos. It's my first narrative video project of this kind. 


Le Prince Sentimental - Today After A Year


My new video essay is about a love story one year ago, a retrospective told in a video essay, partly using the details from the photo books: COLORJOY by Vojta Sláma (2013) and VELVET GENERATION (2019).

Homage to BOHÈME SAUVAGE Colonia


Before we go to the famous party series "Bohème Sauvage", this time in Colonia, we are with our stylist Gülay Toprak in her "Mythos-Harre & Make-Up-Studio" in Cologne and make ourselves beautiful... Thereby the wonderful piece of music of "Gramophoniacs" is playing: Bei Mir Bist Du Sheen....

"Bohème Sauvage is a lavish celebration honoring the heroes of bygone fashionable days. Inspired by the French Belle Époque, Berlin's Roaring Twenties and America's Swingin' Thirties, this era is celebrated to perfection..."

Pepperoni with honey


A video work about my first love, about my youth in West Georgia marked by the scent of oranges and fairy tales of the Thousand and One Nights...

Sinngedichte  - Homage to the Pre-Raphaelites


"A painting means to me a beautiful romantic dream of something that has never was, never will be - in a better light than it has ever seemed - in a land that no one can name or remember, and can only wish for." Edward Coley Burne - Jones (1833 - 1898. The British painter and leading Representative of the Pre-Raphaelites).


This work is a tribute to the Pre-Raphaelites. Especially the light-flooded, dreamlike depiction of nature and the ambiguous symbolism of the imagery, which is almost too beautiful to be true, this particular state of suspension between the real and the dream world has inspired me.


The images were digitally photographed, printed with a "defective" printer on the pages of the book of poems by Ludwig Uhland, from 1911, printed out and then analog, using the Encaustic, processed. This series consists exclusively of unique pieces.

The idea was to create something that eludes today's flood of images, something that defines the age of photography differently - a poetic contradiction, in fact.

Selfreflection: Corona Feeeling


During the Corona period, I missed my family in Georgia the most. All of a sudden, the border was there again, almost impossible to cross.... The uncertainty of when I would be able to see my family again, when I would be able to play with my nieces again in our old house in Guria, West Georgia, tormented me.... In the times of hard lockdown, I often dreamed of Tbilisi's streets, of special fragrance of our garden, of my mother's voice....

hall of fame - reloaded


2009 - 2021

In my work hall of fame I deal with the star and celebrity phenomenon and the fascination they trigger. 

The star phenomenon is not a product of modern times, but a timeless phenomenon, just like the human urge for recognition, fame and immortality. And yet death is the beginning of fame. It frees the "stars" from human weaknesses and transforms them into the timeless saints and idols. 


My work is a self-dramatization. I am covered in a black costume. One sees me and one does not see me. Sometimes I am a "blasphemous Madonna", sometimes a "fetish saint" and sometimes a being between a king and the "Oscar".

The photographs are dyed with black tea and the small formats are additionally treated with the wax. 


I found the fusion of photographic and painterly elements particularly exciting: the imperfect surface of the photographs, so undesirable especially in the case of the mortal stars, as it refers to decay and transience, so the wax lays down as a protective film on the images, and spoils the "stars" on their way to immortality. 


My renditions are often the results of various experiments based on different craft and digital processes. The playful aspect of surprise and the search for a new expression are particularly important to me.

Why are you here?


Why are you here?" is a multimedia project with text, image, audio and video layers, a work-in-progress.

It is about my roots, about my two homes. A story about searching and finding, failing and getting up again.

Pepperoni with Honey

Preliminary work


Thought as a book project, partly autobiographical. A mixture of text and image. A mixture of the two worlds, my two homes: Georgia and Germany. Formerly fifty-fifty, now more lifetime spent here. Where is my home? What determines my identity?

The journey to the origin of my memories...

Singularity                                                                                                                                                                                                               An ongoing project


Currently I am working on a project with the working title "Singularity - Behind the event horizon".  It is about our life on earth and the parallel in the universe. A kind of connection between these worlds, one within reach and the other not necessarily directly present in our everyday life. 





Let's talk about PMS


Sometimes it's not just dark outside.... 

Mood swings, cravings, and weight gain - the second half of the cycle is a real challenge for many women, and every month anew. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) gives them a wide variety of psychological and physical symptoms. 

The video is dedicated to the dark days of many women.


Kiss and tell Story


What you always wanted to know about sex, love, fake orgasms and more...                                                                                                Vol. 1

A special Georgian therapy method


ცივი წყალი დალიე და გულზე მოგეშვება - Drink cold water and lighten your heart                                                                                In the situations where you can not change anything is to use this method instead of getting angry;-)
