Marsha’s performances revolve around her fascination with food and the domestic. In ‘Widely Read Housewife’ a video-based work, she carefully washes and hangs to dry on a washing line, rows of precious Russian books in her Moscow flat. In ‘Pelmeri’ at home, a magic trail of typical Russian ravioli sweets was hidden in the house. The audience were invited to search for the sweets in and amongst the clutter of family life. Marsha Chuykova is a leading Moscow-based performance artist who has presented her work internationally.
