Projects

The projects of Nathalie Abbing at the academy of fine arts made many heads turn: swings and gallows hung from the beams at the old gunpowder storage house in the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands. "My work is a reflection of how I feel." Still, she does not want to shock people, but make them think. Lately her work became somewhat milder, according to herself.

In her art Nathalie opens up for a reflection on her own life. “The theme of my work is based on my own life and experiences. With the help of a variety of materials I give in to the inner urge to imagine my stories. The primary goal in my work is sharing experiences with the spectator so they can get a connection with my creations. My oeuvre consists of a broad range of disciplines and materials. Alongside working with dead animals and making golden sculptures, I create installations from mixed materials. Preferably custom made for a specific location, based on a conceptual idea. When appropriate, I like to give performances and I also make 2-dimensional work; paintings in oils and acrylic paint and with textiles and photographical projects. Anything I can get my hands on for creating is more than a way of life for me.”
