Born in Moscow, Russia, in 1984. Currently lives in Kyoto, Japan.
Tutatchikova focuses her interest on the connection between the imagination, walking, and storytelling. With the help of local residents and through her own experience, she approaches different lands as resources of poetry, history, imagination and thought. Her exhibited work comes in the form of installations using video, photography, ceramics, drawings and text.
After studying classical music and Japanese literature in Moscow, Tutatchikova moved to Japan in 2012, where she finished her master’s and doctor’s degrees in Fine Art at the Tokyo University of the Arts.
