Looking Through the Ink Chamber

Putting pen to paper, this slow art walk calls on exercises designed to trick our brains into alternative ways of seeing.

Natalya Konforti is a designer, artist and cultural program facilitator with a degree in Fashion Design from ESMOD International. A decade in the garment industry cultivated her attunement to color palettes, a fascination with patterns, as well as a deep appreciation for textile craftsmanship. Her process-driven, introspective practice is grounded in what we leave behind, channeling themes of memory, community, and sustainability. Through a variety of mixed mediums including photography, paint and textile, her work pays homage to a meaningful technique, material, or location.

Natalya has gained recognition amongst peers of the creative industry for her non-profit community initiatives, and is also a contributor to cultural entities such as Jameel Arts Centre, and Dubai Design Week. She has participated in exhibitions at Tashkeel, RAKFAF, Alserkal Avenue, and DIFC Art Nights; her work has been featured in numerous publications including The National, Khaleejesque, Friday Magazine, and Arab News. Natalya lives in Dubai and works out of her studio in Tashkeel’s historical Al Fahidi branch.

About Slow Art Walks

Aligned with ‘alternative ways of being’ and mindfulness, Alserkal Art Week Slow Art Walks invite the visitor to take the time to slow down and reflect, not to rush to unpack or understand. We’ll be joined by critical voices from the arts—both emerging and established—to welcome audiences to spend an evening with artworks in the Avenue. This spring’s two walks will last 45 minutes each starting at 7:30pm and 9:30pm, and will be led by Dr Jill Magi and Auguste Nomeikaite.
