Meggy Rustamova

2018 Residency: October through November

Meggy Rustamova was initially educated in Theatre and Performance in Antwerp, Brussels, and Berlin. While never referring explicitly to her origins, themes such as language, identity, and displacement are central to Meggy Rustamova’s work. She approaches these subjects sometimes through performances, and at others using photos, sound installations or video. For her videos, Rustamova often starts collecting pictures that she transfers to film and where she builds a story upon. Her videos play down in the twilight of fiction and reality, personal and collective memory.  She is perhaps most well-known for her video work. Using photography, which she transfers to film, she translates stories that bring the tensions between reality and fiction, static and moving images, to a boiling point.
