Natasha is an interdisciplinary artist and art educator who lives in Montreal. Of Israeli-Canadian background, her work is based on narratives, biography, and ideas about belonging. She uses both temporal and permanent materials to express these specific concepts. Her work attempts a conversation between historic and probable bodies of sensual knowledge while weaving between notions of social equity, access, and pluralities of being.
Her project for PCJA will be a translation/interpretation based on selected voices (interviews and abstract sound bites) transformed into soundscapes accompanied by abstracted visual traces of works and archival photographs found in the Alex Dworkin Canadian Jewish Archive. These audiovisual vignettes will amplify the less audible/visible voices of the cultural workers whose distinct expressions, as double minorities in Quebec, have inspired what is our contemporary Quebecois/Canadian culture.
