Experiencing Interruptions?

The Drowning Dance

The feeling of joy and feeling of fear existing simultaneously as the body is caught in the whirlpool of current, not knowing what is up and what is down. Terrifying moments before the body relaxes and surrenders.

Director Biography - Nataša Prosenc Stearns

Nataša Prosenc Stearns is a Slovenian born video artist and filmmaker based in Venice, CA. She moved to Los Angeles on a Fulbright Grant for her MFA at CalArts.

Currently she is part of the 2015 Venice Biennale exhibition 20 Artists from Los Angeles curated by bardoLA.

Nataša's work spans across several fields: single channel videos and films, multichannel video installations, video objects and prints. It 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 alienation. She is also focusing on human body, striving to find a ground of connection that unites people with the organic world, a safe place for healing and expansion. So her work often resides in the variable spaces between the world and the physical body, frequently hinting on its potential limitlessness.
