Natalie Morgan-Klein’s work explores the energy, vulnerability, sensitivity and sentience of the human body. She is interested in subjectivity and affect in the context of the physical environment and in the web of power relations in which the body is bound up, within institutions and processes of production. Through object-making, installation, performance, text and video, she explores what it might mean to evoke the particular qualities of the human body and its affective states, in spaces that seem incongruent with them.
