Response / Response

Natalie Czech

Info: In her conceptual photography, Natalie Czech (DE 1976) investigates the relationship between image and text and thus explores the possibilities of pictorial and linguistic symbols. In doing so, she engages in a tongue-in-cheek play with the power of images and the meaning of texts. In her works, she draws on aspects of pop- and conceptual art in order to place them in new dialogs with one another.
