Multimedia artist Taus Makhacheva opens first solo exhibition in London
From Vababai Vadadai!

15 April 2015

Multimedia artist Taus Makhacheva opened her latest exhibition in London last night. Vababai Vadadai! is Makhacheva’s first comprehensive solo exhibition in London, featuring videos and performance conceived to reflect the numerous conceptual approaches to art which she explores. Bringing together strands of social anthropology research, the exhibition is centred around people and individual relationships with nature, in particular mountain landscapes which have great symbolic significance for the people of her native Dagestan.

Born in Moscow, Makhacheva focusses much of her art on national identity and the creation of a non-verbal vocabulary for transcultural exchange.
