Born in the USSR, brought up in the Republic of Georgia and now living in London, Sophio Medoidze is an artist and filmmaker who works with film, writing, photography and sculpture. For a time, she worked anonymously as part of Clara Emigrand collective. Her work is marked by precarity and explores the poetic potential of uncertainty. She often acts in her own films, which progress by juxtaposing different image modalities and bashing sounds against one another.
Her work is driven by the desire that is caught up between state violence and personal agency. Her work has been shown, amongst others at LUX London, CAC Bretigny, Serpentine Cinema (Peckhamplex), Kunstmuseum Luzern, Whitechapel Gallery, Arnolfini, Tbilisi Art Fair’s public programme. She is a recipient of Feature Expanded Development award for her feature film ‘Let us flow!’, also supported by the Arts Council England. + CV
