synopsis

CATEGORY : experimental

Natalia’s work is based on relationships and patterns of human activities, which can predict behaviour and evoke particular feelings. She examines the concept of being ‘thrilled’. For some people it is like a drug, the act of risk taking is appealing, but with the reassurance we can avoid danger without any consequences. The artist refers to the internal need to break the rules in order to feel the thrill of excitement, and the lack of control over what will happen. This is particularly important in today’s society, where we rarely allow ourselves such freedom. The work in the installation is based on the balance between the tension that gives us momentary control over feelings that are about to explode.
