Natasha Cantwell

Natasha Cantwell’s recent photographs explore the uncanny; the unsettling feeling of experiencing the familiar and the strange at once. This can permeate anything that is simultaneously its own opposite, such as the real and unreal or the living and non-living. Cantwell’s unoccupied rooms display the kitsch residues of erstwhile inhabitants; perhaps a comment on the propensity New Zealanders have for destroying their surroundings in order to define their own spaces.
