Natascha Stellmach Curriculum Vitae
My practice examines identity, vulnerability and empowerment. The tension between belonging and alienation are the focus of my research, and these questions play out on the body, in relation or through installed works.
With over 25 years across an interdisciplinary practice that incorporates photography and performance, somatic practices, a therapeutic background, creative coaching and teaching, I also draw upon these influences.
My work is held in international collections, has been exhibited at Documenta Kassel, MACBA Barcelona, MAK Vienna, PICA Perth and ACP Sydney etc., and supported by The Australia Council, Stiftung Kunstfonds, Arts Victoria, Melbourne University, Sidney Myer Fund and Goethe Institute, amongst others. My education includes an MFA (Interdisciplinary Practice) at VCA, Melbourne University, Applied Photography at RMIT Melbourne and a BaAppSc (OT) at Latrobe University.
Since 2012 I’ve performed the artistic-somatic practice, THE LETTING GO, in diverse settings, from museums to private sessions. Since 2003 I’ve collaborated as part of the international duo BORIS+NATASCHA.
Born in Australia to German immigrants, since 2004, I’ve divided my time between coastal Victoria, Australia and Berlin. From 2007 until their closure in 2020, I was represented in Berlin by Wagner + Partner.
