On the 28th of March 2017, SomoS presents the work of one of its current residents, multi-media artist Natusha Croes who has arrived in Berlin from Aruba.
The young artist creates music compositions with a visual affinity; manipulating the sound of organic pieces through digital means such as loop machines and music production softwares. This will act as the leading base for her explorative performances connecting the performer (body), object and sound.
Her work comes from a deep love for introspection, touching themes such as vulnerability, identity, personal-impersonal contact, honesty and the human condition revealed through poetics.
She works using a variety of mediums, however finds most of her comfort through the work of performance art. With a strong affinity for unconventional music production, Natusha Croes communicates her message using a combination of audio-visual experiences, one-on-one performances, live art and multi-media storytelling; perpetuating a crossover creator.
During this event, you will get to witness a sketch performance of what the artist has been developing so far at SomoS during her residency program accompanied by a brief presentation about her performance work.
About Natusha Croes
Born in 1991 in Oranjestad, Aruba, Natusha Croes is a member of a family of musicians.
After participating in many cultural events as a child growing up, she quickly gained a curiosity for other forms of expression and gradually developed her practice in the field of visual arts. She went on to study at Gerrit Rietveld Academy, the Netherlands, in the department of audio visual arts, as well as at Ateliers ‘89, Aruba.
Having returned back to Aruba, Croes participated in a number of exhibitions, conceptualized creative events as well as performed in different music venues in order to bring forward the practice of performance in contemporary art.
During her residency at SomoS, the artist aims to form a new performative identity that could help her develop new narratives surrounding her newfound fascination with ready-made instruments.
