  • Koka Ramishvili

    1956 born in Tbilisi, GE
    lives and works in Geneva, CH

    In his multimedia-based work which includes video, painting, drawing, photography, objects, and installation, the Geneva based artist Koka Ramishvili consistently pursues those issues which he has been concerned with ever since the beginnings of his career: What is it that makes a picture a picture? How do different artistic genres relate in this matter? And how can the borderlines between categories in general be eliminated? Especially his works from the 1990s often take a political actuality as a starting point, as Ramishvili belonged to the so called «last Soviet generation» of artists who initiated a vivid art scene in Tbilisi from 1991 on. Subsequently, he became a major trailblazer and reference for younger artists. Furthermore, Ramishvili gained international attention when he represented Gerogia at the Venice Biennial in 2009.
