Taus Makhacheva’s At the Eagle’s (Tsumikh)
Canal Projects is pleased to announce the exhibition of Taus Mackhacheva’s At the Eagles (Tsumikh). In the video work, Makhacheva brings herself and her own biography to the centre-stage. She interrogates the fraught relationship between personal and public memory by revisiting, comparing and subverting how her late grandfather, Rasul Gamzatov, is remembered. In the work, Makhacheva’s childhood memories meet her adult remembrances and his public memorialisation, which the film subtly reveals are at odds with one another.
