Nastassja Simensky

Nastassja Simensky is an artist working both collaboratively and as an individual, using moving image, writing, music, performance and fieldwork as a way to explore a material understanding of politics and history.

Through a place-specific practice, Nastassja spends extended periods of time working with people, focusing on the relationship between local and global structures in landscapes where social, natural and technological territories have become part of an increasingly entangled ecology.

Natassja’s Jerwood Bursary will fund research and development sessions with three mentors which will help to deepen understanding of interdisciplinary and place-specific art, acquiring new technical skills and digital tools for performance and video. Natassja will workshop initial ideas in order to draft a new performance and video in response to an archaeological dig.
