Profile

Natalia D. Portnoy

Photographer

Born in 1987, in Poland, an artist, currently living and working in amsterdam. In the artistic explorations and researches, I am inclined to study various types of dissonance, I’m interested in conflict between the imagined and the real character of things (or rather an attempt of defining what is "reality"). I tend to regard reality as a field of codes (cultural, social, linguistic) where the art allows to deconstruct existing systems of definitions and concepts. Therefore, important for me in the process of artistic creation is the phenomenon of ritual, the historical baggage, vices and habits, the internal coupling, superstition and social transgressions. My on-going mission is to capture the ephemeral, symbolic, shapeless matter in the way that it communicates the best, unobvious and complex character of an image.
