Portrait by Karin Cheng, 2013

choreography is the organization of space and time

film is the organization of space and time

and people

form is the outcome based on structures


I get attracted to the

rearrangement

In her artistic work, Nathalie Koger puts the focus on the parameter of culture in relation to body and space. The core of her filmic work is discovery and appropriation of space through movement, play with codes and conventions and last but not least, a media reflective problematisation with the handling of the depiction. Influenced by performance studies, experimental film and critical theory, she develops clearly structured and pointed moving images for the cinema as well as in an exhibition context.

Currently (2011- aimed until 2015) I am an emerging artist "on the road", more accurately "off the road", watching out for diverse locations, professional encounters, national, international, transnational, and using residency programs to continue and elaborate my artistic work. If I have to define my interests, I would mention the following: embodiment, somatics, appropriation, spatial encounters, montage, curatorial thinking and, of course, film.   

My media are conversation, publications, photography and moving images, in general, images produced with light. I learned a lot from contemporary performance, choreography and collaboration as methodology and tool, as well as Cultural Studies and Critical Theory at large. There are a number of professionals who cast inspiration on me.
