Natasha collaborates with artists and arts organisations around the world to produce work about a broad spectrum of topics. Below is a sample of two of these projects: the first an intimate series about care produced in Bonn, Germany with photographer Grace Gelder, and the second a large-scale programme of climate change events curated by London-based Platform at Arnolfini in Bristol.
Doing Nothing: Documenting Care
The series of photographs were all taken inside the Rivett-Carnac temporary household in Bonn, Germany over a period of 18 months and aimed to capture the daily, domestic life of Natasha and her two children, Zoe and Arthur. Grace’s camera lived on a shelf in the living room, ready to capture everyday moments, but the project came to life when Natasha brought a writer’s sensibility to the experience of being witnessed as a mother. The series is featured at Goldsmith University's Women's Art Library (London), and will be presented at University of Cumbria's Institute of the Arts (UK) and The Nordic Summer University in Latvia.
C Words: Carbon, Climate, Capitol, Culture
In collaboration with Platform London, Natasha supported Platform London's Curator Jane Trowell in delivering more than 80 events over 50 days at Arnolfini in Bristol (UK). Platform combines art, activism, education and research in its approach to social and ecological issues. The exhibition examined climate change in the run-up to COP 2009.
Natasha also built the Platform Archive, a collection of over 25 years of work that highlights the organisation's thorough research practices and unique methodology.
