Tanya Pioniker was born in Moscow in 1994. She began her exhibition activities at the age of 17 — in 2011, becoming the youngest participant in the special "START" project at Winzavod Center for Contemporary art. In 2014 she took part in the parallel program of the European Biennale Manifesta 10 in St. Petersburg.

In 2017, the second personal exhibition "XVII" took place in VLADEY Space. The third solo exhibition "New ABC-book" (Gogol center) and the solo show of etchings "Seven" (JART Gallery) were held in 2021. She took part in many group shows, including a large-scale exhibition of contemporary art "One Family" as part of the "Cherry Forest" festival (2019).

In 2020, she was shortlisted for the ISCP residence, New York, USA. In collaboration with ciconia x ciconia Verlag (Berlin) she worked as an illustrator for books: "Mannelig in Ketten", 2022 (together with Ilya Danishevsky), "Leben mit einem Idioten", 2021 (together with Viktor Jerofejew).

The current interest of the artist is focused on the studies of the concept of the New Medievalism: this is an attempt to capture the current state of affairs — the time of total uncertainty and global processes.
