Biography

Natacha Mankowski practices architecture with immateriality. Her work evolves around her ongoing investigation in the immersive qualities of architecture and its practice as an all inclusive experience. By radically liberating her praxis from its conventional tools (plan, section, calculation, weight, …) or classical forms of architecture, she creates spaces to return to the very essence of her view as a architect. As a start, Natacha Mankowski uses the perspective as a central device to catch her imagery and invites her audience to share this experience.

Her work has been presented at various international art centers including : Zentrum fur Kunst ind Urbanistik (Berlin, GE) 2014 ; the Watermill Center (NY, USA) 2015, Pole muséal de Lisieux – Ateliers Intermédiaires (Lisieux, FR) 2015, Ceci Foundation (Berlin, GE) 2016, New Day Gallery (Berlin, GE) 2016, Souvenirs (Berlin, GE) 2016.

Natacha Mankowski has also collaborated with a range of artists, designers and curators for projects, festivals and site-specific venues such as : Month of Performance (Berlin, GE) 2014, Kreuzberg Pavillion (Berlin, GE) 2014, Berlin Art Week 2015, Traverse Festival (Toulouse, FR) 2016, Festival of Lights (Berlin, GE) 2016, Berghain (Berlin, GE) 2015 – 2017.

She has been invited to numerous artist residency programs around the world, such as : Villa Lena (IT) 2015, The Brooklyn Navy Yard (NY, USA) 2015, the Watermill center (NY, 2015), Mana Contemporary (NJ, USA) 2016. Since 2015, Natacha Mankowski has been teaching and speaking about her work at institutions, such as the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam.

Natacha Mankowski currently works in Paris and Berlin. She is part of the Taylor Foundation in Paris and was the recipient of the Tony Garnier Prize, for Architecture and Urbanism awarded by the Académie Française d’Architecture in Paris.
