Part of Estuary Broadcasts, curated by RTM.FM
for Estuary 2021 - to be broadcast on Saturday 29 May.
Natasha Bird is an artist based in London who makes sculptural objects that speak about industrial and bodily functions. Current work is concerned with aspects of city water infrastructures, ideas of flow and stagnation and their potential for production; and how these relate to the experience of being a body inside a system.
She is currently undertaking a research residency at Crossness Pumping Station in South East London, commissioned by artist space TACO! Previous exhibitions include Earth Eaters curated by Cole Projects, Moloko Plus Six at Thamesmead Texas, London and Testbed Alice at The Old Waterworks, Southend. She has participated in residencies at Cultureland (NL), Catalyst Arts at the Curfew Tower (NI) and the Trelex Residency (Switzerland).
