Natalie Fyfe is an interdisciplinary artist and performer. Natalie’s research is rooted in an interest in eating pathologies and auditory hallucinations (hearing voices). She interrogates her own experience with psychosis through the medium of the mouth to confront and challenge attitudes, behaviours and social stigmas. Composing with mundane sounds and choreographies, the mouth performs isolated from the body to create intersections of control between delusion and reality. Her performance art works, live art installations, 3d objects and 'gastronomical' creations are all wrapped up in the mouth. Liberating a creature of oral performativity that has been lost in the discourse of the voice.
Natalie is currently based in The Hague, the Netherlands, where she is a member of Stroom Den Haag, receiving the Stroom Pro Invest grant (2018) for her current body of work 'Choreography of the Mouth.' Natalie works as both an artist and part-time chef, facilitating compositional, performance, 3d object making and cooking workshops. Natalie holds a MMUS degree from the ArtScience Interfaculty at The Royal Conservatoire, and The Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague, where she was awarded; the Masters ArtScience department Award and the Royal Academy of Art Masters Award for her graduation work Nil by Mouth (2017). Natalie previously studied at Leeds College of Art, where she obtained a first-class honours degree in Interdisciplinary Art and Design (2013) and a Graduate Fellowship (2014).
