Nathalie Slachmuylders' work describes surreal spaces and a suspended destination. Her interests include fragmented bodies, doubles, ecological resources, and the changing landscape. She feels optimistic about science and admires humanity's drive to keep pushing its terrestrial and psychological horizons.
A Belgian social pedagogue, Nathalie came to art as a mature student in CEAD NCAD part-time programmes. Afterwards she studied MA Art in the Contemporary World in NCAD.
Nathalie has shown work in Livestock@MART, Eblana House, Sculpture In Context, INPUT/OUTPUT Bruges, Carton House and received the DCC Incubation Space Award.
