Natasha MacVoy: Groping in the Dark

Date: Saturday, Sep 28 2019 - Sunday, Oct 13 2019
Venue: Test Space

Natasha MacVoy presents new works exploring the limits of sight and site, using the tongue as motif, research companion, and mute narrator.

Natasha MacVoy (b.1977) works predominantly in sculpture, installation and performance. For six years after the birth of her children, Natasha couldn’t afford a studio so retrained as a tennis coach and studied neuroplasticity.

Using tennis as a tool, she devised lessons that explored physical space, movement, interaction, listening and looking.

Standing on court she realised that her practice had not stopped but her studio had moved.
Natasha also curates HER MIT Projects, a series of pop-up exhibitions, performances, collaborations and conversations using readily available materials, locations and resources.

HER MIT Projects aims to provide a safe space for growing ideas, whilst questioning the possibilities of how work is produced, shown and shared. It is a space for trial and error learning, mistake making and list writing.
