Natacha Mankowski

BIOGRAPHY

Natacha practices architecture in the surface. Her work evolves around her ongoing investigation in the immersive qualities of architecture and its practice as an all inclusive experience. By radically liberating her praxis from it's conventional tools or classical forms of architecture, she creates spaces to return to the very essence of her view as an architect.

Her work has been presented at various international art centers including : Zentrum fur Kunst ind Urbanistik (Berlin, GE) 2014 ; the Watermill Center (NY, USA) 2015, Pole muséal de Lisieux – Ateliers Intermédiaires (Lisieux, FR) 2015, Ceci Foundation (Berlin, GE) 2016, New Day Gallery (Berlin, GE) 2016, Souvenirs (Berlin, GE) 2016, the Epigraphic Museum (Athens, GR) 2018, Deschool and ISO (Amsterdam, NL) 2019.

Natacha Mankowski has also collaborated with a range of artists, designers and curators for projects, festivals and site-specific venues such as : Month of Performance (Berlin, GE) 2014, Kreuzberg Pavillion (Berlin, GE) 2014, Berlin Art Week 2015, Traverse Festival (Toulouse, FR) 2016, Festival of Lights (Berlin, GE) 2016, Berghain (Berlin, GE) 2015 – 2017, Design Parade (Toulon, FR) 2018, Get Lost – Art Route (Amsterdam, NL) 2019.
