Director Biography - Natasa Prosenc Stearns

Nataša is a Slovenian born filmmaker and video artist. Before moving to the US, she worked for the Slovenian television and its CNN branch. In Venice she started her production company Kanalya Pictures. Her films Souvenir, (released by Cinema Epoch), The Death of Socrates, (collaboration of 23 international filmmakers), Plato's Symposium (in post production), and others explore innovative strategies in storytelling and visual expression.

Nataša earned her BA at Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She moved to Los Angeles in 1997 on a Fulbright Grant for her MFA at CalArts. She represented Slovenia at the 48th Venice Biennale and showed her work at ARCO Madrid, at The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, in Doulon Museum of Art in Shanghai, etc.

Nataša's work spans across several fields: single channel videos and films, multichannel video installations, video objects and prints. Stylistically her work walks the line between concrete and abstract, often adding the components of surreal and ephemeral. Her work focuses on relationship between human body and nature in times dominated by cyber experiences, which tend to desensitize humans. It also explores physical and psychological limitations of human body.

Director Statement

My work reflects on the uncertain place in today’s world of consumerism and constant crisis, attempting to touch upon our center of empathy. It expresses angst, absurdity, the anxiety and the feeling of distance; that we have all withdrawn into places of alienation. I’m trying to find a ground of connection that unites people with the organic world, a safe place for healing and expansion. So my work often resides in the variable spaces between the physical body and the world. It also explores the physical and psychological limitations of human body and hints on its potential limitlessness. The artwork expands towards spectators' own sense of embodiment as it articulates itself prior to any thoughts and theories.
