2013 Season II


Artist Statement

Natasha Frisch is an artist who employs modest materials such as tracing paper and double-sided tape to construct models and installations that closely approximate everyday objects and sites

Often purpose-built and dependent on the particular architecture of the site in which the work is being exhibited, the fragile and impermanent nature of the materials used ensures that the work cannot be easily transported or translated for future exhibition.

Inspired by urban folklore, forgotten architecture and the natural environment Natasha’s constructions act as a document of the places where human behavior has altered spaces for better or worse, and via stillness and spatial displacement allow for a slippage between the real and the unreal.

The Australian Artists' Grant is a NAVA initiative, made possible through the generous sponsorship of Mrs Janet Holmes à Court and the support of the Visual Arts Board, Australia Council for the Arts.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
