Natalie Fyfe is an emerging artist and performer who positions herself at the crossroads of art and music. With an interest in psychopathology, Natalie composes with mundane sounds and isolated body parts to create intersections of control between delusion and reality. Natalie’s works are derived from her own personal experiences with mental health, but navigate towards her audience to play with expectations and perceptions.

Natalie Fyfe is a graduate from MA ArtScience at The Royal Conservatoire, The Hague. Natalie was awarded both the Masters ArtScience department Award and the Royal Academy of Art Masters Award for her graduation work, Choreography of the Mouth (2017). Natalie is currently based in The Hague.

Choreography of the Mouth is an ongoing performative series exploring the mouth as an organ of radical expression. A performative chamber fundamental to identity and social conditioning; we choose what to put in and what to spit out, applying social etiquette to its behaviors. It is a place of exchange, a bridge between the inner and the outer, the self and the world. But the mouth seems to move as if by its own infraction; at any moment, the mouth can suddenly part. Precognitive movements and sounds occur from its wet impressionable envelope, unconsciously providing an insight into our inner thoughts and emotions.
