Nat Portnoy is working with mediums such as video, installation, object, photography and painting. Her projects are mainly based on theories of sociocultural construction. She is interested in examining the cognitive processes of pleasure, exploring its connotations with fetish, self-representation, identity, ritual and the complexity of language used to determine desire. “In my artistic practice, I like to refer to existing ideologies and believes, examining it through the knowledge of a collective and personal experience.”
