Sophio Medoidze

Sophio Medoidze is a visual artist who was born in the Soviet Union, grew up in the republic of Georgia and lives and works in London. Working primarily with film and video, though also with text, photography, sculpture and installation, her practice explores similarities between cinema, touch and language; she is interested in the instances of hollowing out language with bad grammar and repetition. Her desire for fragmentation stems out from her own experience of displacement, both geographic and linguistic. Medoidze’s films are known for their experimental nature and their use of innovative audio-visual techniques. Over the past five years she has been working with the nomadic Tushetian community in Northeast Georgia, Tusheti Trilogy is one outcome of that process. Her first monograph, Bastard Sun was published by Distanz Verlag and Kona Books (2023).

Medoidze has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally including solo presentations at Tate Modern (UK), Kunsthal Charlottenborg (DK), Beursschouwburg (BE), OUTPOST Gallery (UK), Serpentine Cinema (UK).
