Natasha Bourke is a Cork-based interdisciplinary artist of Irish/Dutch descent with a fine art and extensive movement/circus background. Her practice embraces analogue and digital, lens-based media installation, performance, archive, drawing and sound. Bourke is an Arts Council Next Generation artist and has presented live/filmic/installation work, solo and collaboratively, in numerous events across Ireland/Europe, since 2007. The artist’s life/roots underpin her work contemplating themes of self and society including identity, isolation, institution, legacy, transience, perception, polarity, pathos and play. With a surreal, spectral and sincere aesthetic, Bourke continually investigates new ways to refine the different strands of her practice into a unique coherent poetic language, whilst maintaining an open process. She is in the final post-production stages of an Arts Council funded experimental feature film, Concrete Keys, and exhibited a highly-reviewed sister installation, 'rubblebubble', for IndieCork 2019. These works include Coneface, absurd performance alter ego, to poetically examine the individual’s place in a rapidly transforming vision of institutional society. Recent work, T.U.G! Litter Womb, will re-emerge on Lough Foyle, Derry for EchoEcho Festival 2021 and is part of an ambitious new water-based performance vision that Bourke is developing with support of the Arts Council, Firkin Crane, Cork City Council, Cork Midsummer and EchoEcho festivals. She is also researching towards a new experimental film work that examines erasure of ancestral lines and places.
