Her practice encapsulates a variety of mediums through which she researches possible implementation of feminist care practices through evoking a dialogue between material, writing, hosting and the audience. Within the world building that finds place in her practice, she speculates possible scenarios in which togetherness can build a long-term healing process in recognition of interdependence between communities and non-human companions.

(Destilaat #24 Interview / Jakob Akkeman)

“...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.”
