WonderMuse Natalie White’s debut solo show ‘We Are Me’ – An exploration of selfness and hybridity
Curated in collaboration w/ @LimeWharf
After years as a model and muse for some of the most revered visual artists alive, in particular Peter Beard who put her on the world stage, Natalie White exhibits for the first time her controversial and genuine works alone. Multiple exposure shots of herself in complete nudity without cheats and filters, executed by herself, create a sense of proximity with the person rather than the flesh. Intriguingly unpornographic, her giant unframed Polaroids are singular and unique prints never to be reproduced. In the spirit of the LimeWharf maker focus, she is a complete artist here taking risks and doing everything herself such that the full cycle of production is raw and honest unlike much of what fashion cultivates. A similar series was shown in New York recently at the Rox Gallery ‘Who shot Natalie White’ retrospective of 25 famed talents who have had a stab at portraying her. Natalie White will be at the preview accompanied by video artist and dancer Zoe Rado performing a provocative sensual bizzarerie. Unmissable for the curious.
