“I map personal and historical landscapes allowing them to travel through generations to engage the history of violence, dispossession, and survival; connecting and filling in gaps and forging stories to hold space for new and complex narratives to exist.” Natalie Ball
“Natalie works in a tradition of West Coast/California Assemblage, reminiscent of the 1970s Los Angeles Funk based free Assemblage,” says Essence Harden, an independent curator. “Through her chosen objects, attributed to indigenous identity, Natalie reassesses indigeneity as a space outside of bounded thinking.”
