“...For the exhibition in Extrapool, she is looking into how the properties of food can be implemented for more than just consumption for energy. She invites her audience to sit around a table and create an enumeration of emotions, feelings and personal stories through the format of recipes. The work, boiling point: soft walls & open hearts revolves around the juxtaposition between openness and the culinary. Natalija finds it interesting to remove personal boundaries and to be just one step closer to each other in order to understand each other better.
She finds it important in her work not only to present herself as a maker, but also to give the audience a role in her work. Through interactive performance, she hopes to be able to reach the audience better and initiate self reflection. There are also ceramic works, candles and sage for spiritual rituals, but in the end it's all to support the concept and give the audience a moment where they can enter full tranquility.”
Result of the masterclass at KASK & Conservatorium - Off Sider is a fictive playground for featuring artists such as Tessa Crap, Iris Os, Ivo Perseins & Martin Jean-Philipe Alexander who through their eclectic opus of work present to us the unique nature of what is, essentially, an off sider.

‘Transcendental Sympathy’ - an exploration of space through exploring each other, how we relate to objects and the sensitivity we transmit in the environment. (…) Working together to practice kindness, the performers find themselves creating new rituals with which they establish connection to nature, the divine and amongst themselves.

The video shows a fantasy world, with a narrator softly telling a story about Arcadia, the famous place in Greek mythology that is celebrated for its unspoiled, unattainable wilderness.
'(X)ARCADIA' is an homage to modern day escapism. Questioning authenticity and intimacy in our digital age, as well as distance and the separation of mechanical from organic movement, live from digital, and real from fake.

"...A graduating fine arts student with a solo show. With her dynamic shapes and colours that are full of interaction and play, the limit is way further than the sky for this one."
Focusing on the division on consciousness and unconsciousness, when we truly experience something as a whole, or our imagination and daily perception intertwine - Eclectic Wonderland challenges that paradox using various depictions of fantasy, storytelling and dream-like states.
