Taus Makhacheva, 'Baida', 2017

In this conversation, Taus Makhacheva will talk about her work with Carles Guerra, analyzing the multiple layers that conform her creative practice. Having grown up in Moscow with cultural origins in the Caucasus region of Dagestan, her projects are informed by this personal connection with the co-existing worlds of pre and post Sovietisation. Oftentimes humorous, her works attempt to test the resilience of images, objects and bodies in today’s world. In most of her performance-based works, she analyzes “the body as a supporting structure”, repeatedly challenged in off-limits situations. She often conducts collaborative projects and her body-driven practice leads her to physical challenges. At the LOOP Fair she presents her 2017’s video Badia, with narrative projects (London).
