Natasha Frisch is an artist who employs modest materials, such as tracing paper and tape, to construct models and installations that closely approximate everyday objects and sites. Inspired by urban folklore, forgotten architecture and the natural world, Natasha’s meticulous constructions aim to challenge our reading of the built environment, and interrogate the slippage between the real and the unreal.
Natasha completed her Bachelor of Arts (Media Arts – Honours) at RMIT University, and since then has exhibited consistently both nationally and internationally. Her work has been presented in several solo exhibitions including, Somewhere In Between, Dianne Tanzer Gallery + Projects, 2010, Nasty Little Piece of Work, Next Wave Festival, 2004, and Living, Artbox at Sherman Galleries, 2001.
Natasha’s work has also been featured in numerous group shows, a selection of which includes Art Takes Times Square, Artist Wanted: New York, 2012, Paper Scissors Rock, Dianne Tanzer Gallery + Projects, 2011, Grow Wild, Utopian Slumps, 2008, Elsewhere, Nellie Castan Gallery, 2007, Pleasures & Terrors, Blindside, 2006, and Papercuts, Monash Museum of Art, 2003.
During 2012 Natasha was an Artist in Residence at the Contemporary Artists Centre: Woodside in upstate New York and spent a month in Murrays Cottage as part of the Hill End Artist in Residency program in regional New South Wales.
Natasha was recently an Artist in Residence with Woollahra Council in Sydney, Australia and is currently an Artist in Residence at The New York Art Residency and Studios (NARS) Foundation in Brooklyn, New York, a project assisted by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund, American Australian Association, The Ian Potter Cultural Trust and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
