Chkvishi 2013

by Catrin Bolt

Chkvishi 2013 is a calendar that I developed during a symposion in the small village Chkvishi, Georgia. I was taking (analogue) macro shots of found objects in public space. Through the special perspective, they seem like different landscapes, which are not existing in the woody surroundings. The resulting calendar is called after the village, as the photos were taken there, but it shows virtual sceneries. It was then distributed among the villagers of Chkvishi.
I like to work site-specific and with the place the work is shown at. How and where the artwork is shown seems to me as important as the work itself. By unusual ways of presenting something I try to change the perception of a place.
