Taus Makhacheva (b. 1983, Moscow, Russia) lives and works in Makhachkala and Moscow, Russia. Despite being born in Moscow, Makhacheva’s cultural origins are based in Dagestan which often informs her practice. Makhacheva works with different media including installation and performance, but is predominately known for her video works, often exploring notions of truth relating to cultural authenticity and assimilation from the Sovietisation of Dagestan.Recent exhibitions include 57th Venice Biennale, Italy (2017); Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2016); Shanghai Biennial, China (2016); Kyiv Biennial, Ukraine (2015); Moscow Biennale, Russia (2015 and 2011); Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia (2014); Sharjah Biennial, UAE (2013); and Liverpool Biennial, UK (2012).
