Natalie Perkof: CABINET OF MINIATURES AND DELIGHTS
Natalie Perkof (*1979) explores the limitations and possibilities of form and material through painting and conceptual installations. Cabinet of Miniatures and Delights presents a playful reflection and introspective exploration of female sexuality and its connection to nature. In a series of new large-scale carbon fibre canvases combined with a botanical sculpture, the artist employs symbolic archetypes of sexuality as part of an intimate inner dialog that reflects upon how changing gender tropes impact the on-going balancing act between sexuality and physicality, and the role of instinct, intuition, nurturing and creativity in the female psyche. Natalie is a graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music in Ostrava and Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno.
