For her first solo exhibition in the Netherlands, Meggy Rustamova (1985) presents videowork and a new installation in which she combines photography and audio. Rustamova was born in Georgia but moved to Belgium via the Netherlands with her mother at the age of eight. While never referring explicitly to her origins, themes such as language, identity and displacement are central to her 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. At De Brakke Grond she presents two works: Light Deportation and l'Invitation au Voyage.
