Natasha Norman (b.1982) has an enduring interest in media culture and technology. Her most recent solo exhibition, Further Fictions, was completed for her Masters in Fine Art at UCT and is a meticulous meditation on the appropriation and re-production of visual information through the various reproductive processes of film, photography and print. Her work is a subtle engagement with the serial dynamic of filmic images and the hidden matrices of technological ‘sight.’
Natasha has been awarded a residency in Japan for the month of April 2014 at the Mokuhanga Innovation Laboratory (MI-LAB), where she will receive training in Mokuhanga woodcut printing. Additionally, she currently lectures and tutors part-time in the Discourse of Art department at UCT and in 2013 at Rhodes University in the department of Visual and Art History. She had her first solo show at the Bell-Roberts Gallery in 2007 and has been on a number of local group exhibitions including This is Not Final (2010) at the Michaelis Gallery and Wits Substation, Tretchikoff and Me (2010) at Salon 91, Ways of Seeing at the Ore Gallery (2010), Contusion (2007) at the Irma Stern Museum and theABSA Atelier award finalists (2008 and 2006). She completed her Masters in Fine Art at Michaelis in 2011 and an Honours in Fine Art in 2005 also at UCT.
