Natasha Cantwell

Spanning music video, fashion photography and art projects, Natasha Cantwell’s work is recognizable for candy-coloured hues and a slightly odd sensibility. Her analogue photographs and 16mm experimental films openly embrace awkwardness while drawing from the absurdity of human behavior. The New Zealand-born artist founded the Auckland Underground Film Festival and joined Channels: The Australian Video Art Festival as a producer in 2017. She is currently based in Melbourne, Australia. 

COVE employs a minimalist narrative to explore social isolation as a product of contemporary city living. Centered on a misguided attempt at a neighbourly gesture, it portrays residents in a small cul-de-sac managing to avoid real interaction despite their geographical closeness. The film’s structure reflects the characters’ self-absorption as the story drifts into their individual worlds and we become lost in their preoccupations with mashed potato, blood and perfecting a homemade bee suit.
