Natalia has always been fascinated by different materials, processes and the magic of transformations. How from a wool, a strand, a cable, we can weave meshes, containers and create volumetric forms. Her work is transdisciplinary, inspired by the forms of nature, fungi, underwater, organic worlds. She converts wool, copper weaving, textiles with various techniques, a little invented by herself, into creatures, which are eternally growing. In her pieces, or creatures, things are always happening, being born, emerging or arising. Recently she came across Donna Haraway's writings and Natalia senses that her beings are like that, a little bit chtulucenic.
As Natalia knows herself to be structured, ordered and rigid, she invents techniques to let go and to let herself go. For example, for a textile piece, she first crochets it and then deforms it with an embroidery that is more like a repetitive and intuitive stitch, until the fabric becomes a hard crust. Then Natalia stuffs it with glass beads, like micro-organisms that are originating until they fill all the possible spaces.
With the pieces woven in copper and then enamelled, a similar situation occurs, since weaving metal allows to form and deform whimsically. Natalia moves her hands until she finds the shape she wants and then eternalises it through the process of enamelling in glass at high temperature, achieving a form covered with a layer of irregular enamel, organic and with attractive holes that give a subtle transparency to the forms.
