From the beginning of her artistic activity, Keti Kapanadze investigates language(s) and systems in words and images; in all of her works she explores the possibilities of deconstruction, (humorous) exposure, rearrangement and visualization - this happens in an analytical, conceptual, emotional and poetic way. The micro - and macrocosm of human existence and its forms of communication are examined and collaged in new, insight - generating contexts. Susanne Kleine
