Stay, create and present in th heart of Tokyo
Residence Period: 2019.03.30-2019.05.10
Engaging with the urban and natural environments of Tokyo, I intend to develop a series of site-specific installations, meticulously constructed from tracing paper, that mimic flora from the Australian and Japanese landscape. Forgotten alleyways, deserted parklands and busy sidewalks could all be possible sites for my paper plants, which will inhabit the area briefly and be documented as photographs.

Natasha Frisch is an artist who employs modest materials, such as tracing paper and tape, to construct installations that closely approximate everyday objects and sites. The fragile and impermanent nature of the materials used ensures that the installations are temporary constructions, if the work is to be shown again it must be re-made and all that remains of each iteration is photographic and video documentation.
This project was assisted by a grant from Create NSW, an agency of the New South Wales Government. The NSW Artists' Grant is administered by the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA).
