Natalie Purschwitz is an artist and designer based in Vancouver, Canada. Her work seeks out spaces between art and design, performance and daily life. Her visual art practice is materially motivated and driven by curiosities in anthropology, archaeology, human/nature relationships, morphology and formal arrangement. Clothing is sometimes a starting point for her work. She is interested in how clothing functions as a language and a form of cultural production. Her work incorporates a range of media including sculptural installation, video, performance, photography and works on paper. She has a parallel practice designing costumes and sets for contemporary dance and theatre. Natalie grew up in a small town in the Canadian Rockies.
