Curriculum Vitae – CV

Nathalie Wuerth is an artist, who lives and works in Stockholm. Educated at the Glasgow 
School of Art, Scotland and Konstfack, Sweden. Nathalie works with a focus on language, 
communication and the voice. The voice is used as an instrument to test the borders of the 
body, its extentions in space, the home, the city and the virtual, and its embodiements of 
social norms and conventions.

The voice’s tactile qualities, its propension to establish contact and its physical 
properties similar to that of touch are high-lighted to the detriment of the meaning
making function of language. Through the practice of performance, Nathalie creates 
the material and social conditions to occupy other positions than that of the human 
subject, stepping out of the language based forms of communication, to try out the 
sounds of a vacuum cleaner or that of insects. In the performance, questions of 
human agency and the relations between subjectivity and objecthood is explored. 

Collaboration with others, artists and non artists, is a privileged mode of production in her 
practice. The collective voice has occurred as a tool to map space together with professional 
singers and to approach synaesthetic learning processes with amateur singers and colleagues. 

The work is informed by feminist and post-marxist thinking and relates generally to 
questions about conditions of production within both industrial and post-industrial 
societies and the influence of technology on human communication and interaction.
