Natalie Zervou-Kerruish has been selected to design our next Sunday Spot Play Space commission. This workshop provides a taster, watch this space!
Natalie Zervou-Kerruish is an artist and researcher interested in the wordless language of sculpture and movement. Both these are fundamental in the artist’s ongoing sculptural enquiry into the corporeal and connective qualities inherent in everyday materials. Theatrical, tactile and playful, her work is conscious of the impact the human body has in relation to sculpture and space. When collaborating with others, she is interested in the exchange, the transitional and all things partial. Recent research stems from the symbols and philosophies connected to her Greek heritage, alienation and voicelessness.
