Tekla Aslanishvili is an artist, filmmaker, and essayist based between Berlin and Tbilisi. In her practice, she observes the shifting relations between governments, people, and their territories through the lens of large-scale infrastructure projects. Through interdisciplinary collaborations and experimental documentary approaches, she excavates and weaves together fragmented layers of history, technology, geology and myth that underpin these logistics and energy infrastructures. Tekla completed her studies at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts in 2009 and holds a Master of Arts from the Berlin University of the Arts in Experimental Film and New Media department. Her work has been showcased in several international exhibitions, biennials, and publications. She is a 2019 Digital Earth fellow, a nominee for the Ars-Viva Art Prize 2021, and a recipient of the Han Nefkens Foundation – Fundació Antoni Tàpies Video Art Production Award 2020. Currently, Tekla is a postgraduate fellow at the Berlin Centre for Advanced Studies in Arts and Sciences (BAS) at the Berlin University of the Arts.
