LUX is proud to present a new solo exhibition of London-based artist Sophio Medoidze. BL CK B X: Sophio Medoidze, Jackals and Drones spans more than ten years of artistic practice, bringing together moving image, photography and sound works. Medoidze’s distinct visual style and her signature mode of direct address play with the conventions of both video and the cinema, stripping film of its artifice in a way that it becomes even more artificial.
As Mike Sperlinger has written, “Her films are animated by a peculiar uncertainty principle which propels the viewer from image to image, abruptly and repeatedly shifting between different layers of reality. Often depicting her native Georgia, Medoidze’s films are mosaics in which scenes of mythic otherworldliness oscillate with documentary details, often small and comic.”
