Winner 2018

Keto Logua, born 1988 in Sukhumi, Georgia, studied Painting at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts and Berlin University of the Arts. In 2017 she was a fellow of the Berlin Program for Artists. Her works have been shown at such venues as Between Bridges Berlin (Berlin), KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin), and the goEast Open Frame Award competition at Museum Wiesbaden.

Keto Logua’s sculptures and films often refer to natural phenomena and socio-cultural issues. The artist takes a critical and conceptual approach to found and constructed objects, submitting them to processes of compression and transformation. Examples of this include a 3D print of the world’s first flower, which was reconstructed by a team of scientists last year, or a large sculpture made from elements of a beehive. In another work, Logua designs survival scenarios using everyday objects, thus calling into question the relationship between fiction and reality.
