Natasha Papadopoulou is an artist with a singular and urgent personal vision. Her work examines and challenges the margins of reality and absurdity, addressing the paradox of everyday life scenes, that once extracted from their original context challenge the viewer to a new comprehension of reality.
Since her early photographic work she has engaged her ego and her alter ego in a dialogue that aims to challenge the stereotypes of women in the western society via a series of cliche attitudes mostly expressed via self portraits and video work.
Natasha Papadopoulou studied photography in School of Visual Arts in New York, where she lived and work as a photographer for 12 years, working with magazines such as Vibe, Vice, The Fader, The Face UK, Playgirl, while at the same time performing in venues at The Kitchen,
Bam Theatre and the Brooklyn museum.
Her true calling came when she moved to Athens in 2009 were she devoted herself to the creation of video installations and audio-visual performances, most recently incarnated by her alter ego ‘ Miss Saturation’, a persona living in a digital world with the classic problematic and concerns of any contemporary woman.
This 5 un-published images were shot in the Classic Art section at the Met Museum in NY city.
She says, go on now
Over sexualize the rocks the sun the sand and then pixel fuck them.
Go wild in your virtual abyss.
Oh miss internet user i miss the dance i need to exist.
Now a frozen mega-bite
My new wants are set automatically,
auto-locked auto-saved over worked.
i eat overcooked expectations and their derivatives
while Deleuze is delousing my i
but no ….
i don't want the same as u do.
Stay in a dark place and think.
Check in' in a professional manner,
copy paste and multiply and send far far away.
Colonialism at the age of no return
No potatoes no black jack
no jack potatoes on couch mode
only soft pillows are real here
everything else, a simulation with no scent attached.
(missing text )
…the information was misspelled unchewed and mistranslated.
The revolution will never leave the text.
A re-evolution needs a good back up.
It's long missing in those days when the air was spicy,
inhaling inspiration outdoors.
But, out there is a too cold or too hot.
So stay online and have some appetizing thoughts.
keep your memos and screenshots in order.
Order in, stay in and wild out.
A liquid version of internet could be the cock tail for the future,
but the cock need a chromosome Y and and an egg
i only need an i and and an eye
Individualism when peripheral vision is out of sync
Why bother with the surround sound
My mother tongue is mute,
i just press random play
is all somewhere in my home made disk, is all in my hard core drive ´
and i play hard to get it,
i repeat and reload and replay.
Oh replay, everyday
Everyday looks the same on my screen.
