Natasha Kovacs and Lindsay Parnell are collaborative, cross-disciplinary, artists that combine their individual interests in dance, sculpture, and time based art. They are currently focusing on wet felting as a performative process.
As collaborative artists, we focus on relationships – with each other, with our body, and with physical spaces. Our work is performative, and the objects that we create act as documentation of our shared experiences. The ongoing felt works are playful and bright, inspiring viewers to join in on the warm soapy making. Wet felting is a process that is not exact or time consuming, and often we ask for volunteers to join us and learn the basic skills in exchange for their time. Finished pieces are messy, honest in their handmade qualities and the variety of participants. We hope that by performing our conversations and processes we inspire viewers to draw connections between our actions and the interactions of our community. Can some of that attention and care be used to heal the people around us?
