A palette of perspectives
The exposition "A palette of perspectives" speaks about contemporary perspectives on human solitude in circumstances of an accelerating outer world and consumerism. We take pills to sleep, to be in harmony and to not see ourselves as lonely and as lost as we are. This leaves us closed, traumatized and even more lost than before. The symobls we choose to surround ourselves with, usually those associated with happiness, further distance us from ourselves.

But is this really true? Is loneliness increasing, or is it just a condition that humans have always experienced at various times of life? Are we becoming lonelier or just more inclined to recognize and talk about the problem? Instead of thinking whether the glass is half-full or half-empty, let's examine it from underneath. Let's look at the world from a different perspective.

This show is a collection of F37 residents' latest work in three formats - selected photography prints, zines and virtual projects exhibited via QR codes on visitors' screens. The perspectives of F37 residents will be exhibited: Fidan Nazimqizi, Kamil Abbaszade, Emin Mathers, Lali Binyatova, Sharaf Naghiyeva and guest artists David Finestein, Gvantsa Tsikhovrebashvili and Nick Ergemlidze.

The exhibition will be held from September 29 through October 13
at Dissolution (1 Kekelidze Street, Tbilisi, Georgia).
The opening is on September 29 at 19:00.

Jeyhun Husseinzade

In 2020, during quarantine, someone who stumbled upon the camera thought for sure - Why not. Then he began to get acquainted with people who shoot on film and from this he get carried away even more. "By making a frame on film you feel the uniqueness of each frame and while there is an opportunity in our time to experience analog, I prefer it to digital." says Jeyhun. He loves nature photography the most. It fascinates him with the level of gaze, it shows the volume of space and that real moment that is absorbed on the surface of the film. From 2021, after participating on "Monochrome - yellow to green" he became a member of photography union F37. "I take a picture feeling emotionality and close to the subject, I capture only this frame."

Lali Binyatova


This is a project about people living in the Masalli area. These are ordinary people who live and work in the village. My goal is to show their life and, at first glance, the inconspicuous beauty of their, albeit simple, but remarkable life.
The idea of such a project came to me when, having moved to Azerbaijan, I began to travel to my historical homeland much more often, and began to notice the unusual idyll of the village, which had previously seemed boring to me.

I directed my efforts to show people that district life can be not only depressingly difficult and scarce in joys, events and money, but also give joy from life itself and its unpretentious simplicity. I would like to show how beautiful people are in Masalli, how charming their way of life is, what a beautiful landscape opens up to the eye, unusual for the urban population, without highways, skyscrapers and people always hurrying somewhere.

"Island in the mountains", 2020

(in the frame of the Tbilisi Multimedia Lab Production Grant Program for South Caucasus Female Photographers mentored by Gregoire Eloy \ Tendance Floue)

With these series, produced summer 2020 during the covid-19 pandemic period, Chichek departs from her interest in uncanny suburban subjects and explores human relations within more intergenerational gaps in mind, the village-specific architecture and women labour. In images that recall a fascinating glimpse of mountain life, Bayramly photographs figures posing within a nature reserve declared small rural town Khinaliq, and the road inaccessibility allowed Khinalia to preserve age-old traditions and language, houses and interior, and its vast surrounding mountains, including the actual trail from which the series takes its title. Photographic scenes address the ambiguous narratives that probe tensions between human connection and separation, women labour and childhood, intimacy, and isolation.

Sharaf Naghiyeva

The birth of Venus
Let the events guide you and observe what the sequence of these events says. Having collected all the pieces of the puzzle absolutely intuitively, this time I watched the birth of Venus. A pearly sheen envelops delicate fingers, touches the collarbones and all the senses, as a symbol of femininity. I asked Pari Banu Asgar to share her thoughts on her experience of being Venus.

Leyla Musayeva

She lives in Baku and works mainly as an architect. Leyla is the co-founder of Atelier "Pillə".
Her current work is mainly related to the research of different historic landscapes of her home country, restoration and adaptation of historic cities/villages. Documenting these landscapes became an alternative tool in her understanding of home land, its traditions, nature and people. As for her, photography and filming seems to be a very interesting and understandable way to document and express various observations.

"These photographs were taken in Khinalig village. I had the opportunity to see these houses and the area in general from different angles while I was making documentation of residential buildings as a part of my main working process. As a result, the "documentation" smoothly switched to art photography. This village, which is located at a level of 2200 meters, still retains its language, its customs and traditions, as well as the local architecture difference from other regions of Azerbaijan."

Emin Mathers

Human of 2020

Let's scroll through the time from the time when humans had primitive instruments, as we remember us from the beginning, to the present, as described by the futurists a little less than a century ago, when humankind got a complex view of the modern world. Smartphones upended every element of society during the last decade, from conversation, transportation to food extraction.
The advent of the smartphone marked the combining of man and gadget. These devices might not be embedded into our forearms just yet, but they have so fundamentally changed over the past decade how we interact, explore and now even augments the world nowadays. We're each wholly devoted to these flat rectangle bars, rarely out of hand or at the very least rarely out of reach.

It took 2007's first-generation iPhone, however, to spark the smartphone's rise from novelty to ubiquity. As our digital addiction grew, so did our dependence on intangible tools - apps.
Now in 2020, the smartphone runs a close second to oxygen as an essential. It can quickly call up any ounce of information discovered in human history, letting us answer "How to calculate the length of a circle" via
Google and end stand-up debates on any topic. It lets us produce art, document global events and let our voices be heard at any instance from anywhere. It can help us find like-minded people, organize online meetups on special days without borders, save and share our memories, even translate from an alphabet which does not exist anymore — or hang in uncertainty in the endless hunt for "Likes". It has engulfed our wallets and stereos, diaries and sketchbooks, cameras and maps, newspapers and game consoles. Apps let it transform into a book, a TV remote or a carpenters' level.

However, the smartphone has shaped the "Always online" generation, where most of us become neurons of the huge global brain, ready to respond to each kind of stimulation. Laptops made the workplace mobile, but smartphones tethered people to the workspace in a way we never thought possible — and when the iPhone gave out, plunging humans first into panic and then a kind of calm.

The strengths of 5G and cellular connectivity will make us more reliant on the smartphones because they'll interact with more things throughout our worlds, adding to the ways these devices become extensions of our bodies on the way to the stars.
