Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili at Kunsthalle Basel


"Photographs" devoid of context become functionally useless - making them feel thin, not suited for our age of images mass trained for "engagement,""likes," advertorial smiling. (Its why gallery instagrams are desperate for those Happy Birthday! headshots - over their limitless holdings of art - abstraction is mere slop in the feed.) And these above rightfully own the wallpaper they are. That thinness, that feeling of lack is simply not selling us on something.
