How to be/see a Woman

A video project by purpur collective

2021

About

• The video brings together positions of female photographers who in their current works deal with the topic ‘being a woman

and the representation of women in photography’ and who are involved in this topic in the frame of their artistic work.

• In this project we will show twelve internationally diverse statements regarding different aspects, such as:

traditional role models, family and mother-child-relationship, youth and gender, social and political effects.

• We founded the collective purpur in 2018 to promote the visibility of women in art photography

Something personal about me

° What do I like to deal with: reading, daydreaming, endless research... 

° What interests me besides photography, art, film, music and literature: astronomy

° What else would I have liked to become: astronaut

° How to move: I have been practicing Ashtanga Yoga for seven years 

° What I always miss: The eternal summer at my grandparents' house in Guria, in western Georgia 

° What am I doing secretly: writing

° Guilty pleasure: Some musical sins of the '80s and '90s and "Mon chéri"

° The love of my life: Luka and Shio

° What else matters: Friends who know how I am and still love me 

Anything else

° I love to communicate with people, to develop ideas together, to connect different cultures

° In my workshops, seminars and portfolio reviews I prefer to pick people up where they stand and support each individual to go their own way

° I'm especially interested in artistic and documentary photography. The topics of origin, emigration, young positions and women in photography and art are especially in my focus

° My artistic works are mostly conceptual, partly autobiographical, at the moment a mixture of text and image. I like to work with analogue technology and experiment with the alternative process
