Born in Russia in 1984; lives and works in Tokyo.
After studying classical music and modern East Asian history in Moscow, Tutatchikova studied at the Graduate School of Fine Arts at the Tokyo University of the Arts, majoring in Intermedia Art. She is interested in how human memory is formed through interaction between nature and humanity, and through cultural phenomena, and composes installations consisting of photography, video and text, collecting regional and personal stories through locally conducted research. For instance, producing her photography series «After an Apple Falls From the Tree, There is a Sound» (2009-2015), taken in a rural area near Moscow, was an act of confronting her childhood memories. For KENPOKU ART 2016, she will be presenting an installation piece that focuses on the forestry industry in Daigo.
