Interview: Natasha Monfared

 

Luca Curci talks with artist Natasha Monfared during FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES of BORDERS festival in Venice.

Born in Sheffield, Natasha Monfared is a final year student of Fine Art (BA Hons) at the University of Lincoln, based both in Lincoln and Hull as an artist. Monfared personifies her interests through the medias of video and photography, occasionally combining the two to create audio visuals of a raw aesthetic. Her underlying concern on the political and cultural aspects in Iran is a reflection of the artist’s Iranian background, consequently allowing her to make personal responses from experience and visits to the country. As her practice has developed, she currently further investigates today’s affairs affecting women’s place in society which takes place through the propaganda form of social media.

Interview: Francesca Busca

 

Luca Curci talks with Francesca Busca during Future Landscapes event of BORDERS festival in Venice.

Francesca Busca – In my early life I challenged myself by focusing on things that did not come naturally to me (e.g. studying Classics and going into Law). Yet, I tried for years to placate my internal restlessness by living in different countries and cultures (Pordenone, Padua, Denver, London, Paris, New York…); When I reached 40, with the responsibility of a mother, I settled between London and Trieste and found my outlet in what I liked and did best, namely using my hands to create.
