Natalia Papaeva (1989) is a visual/performance artist, born and raised in Buryatia (Eastern Siberia). Since 2013, she has lived, studied and worked in the Netherlands. Natalia Papaeva uses her memories and experiences informed by her Buryat-Mongolian background. From this material she creates her performances, in which she combines singing, spoken word, and storytelling. The artworks raise poetic questions about major themes such as loss and mourning, language and identity, land and climate, ritual and healing, in a sometimes playful, sometimes serious manner.
