Natasha Jozi (b. 1988, Islamabad, Pakistan) is a visual thinker, artist and writer, interested in the performative self, collective experience and overlaps between the scientific and the spiritual. Her performative and video works explore the tendencies and tensions between bodies and non-bodies. Jozi’s performative works instigate the physical and the psychic space through engaging with moments of silence, the politics of the gaze, meditation, repetitive actions and experiential environments.
Through her performative works she activates the space and allows her body to channelize the energy fields of all material and immaterial bodies. We experience and understand ourselves through the ways we relate to others and this provides us with a perspective towards personal and interpersonal actions. Jozi is interested in the material and immaterial agencies in our eco-systems that constantly engage with our energy and aura and activate our environments. Furthermore investigate ways to transmit all that we associate to the immaterial into the material world.
