- Natalie Hunter
- Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Natalie Hunter is a Canadian Artist who grew up in Hamilton, Ontario; a city known for it's industrial steel manufacturing history. Her multi-disciplinary practice is rooted within the medium of photography, and also extends to material investigations in sculpture, installation, video, and drawing. She is interested in how sensory experience shapes memory and forms an understanding of the self. She examines the ways in which cultural, historical, cinematic and material forms of memory change, bend, and stretch over time, space, and place. As such, her poetic, introspective, and emotive installations often explore storytelling, space, ephemerality, the archive, time, materiality, and the senses, within the fragility of lived experience.
She holds an MFA from the University of Waterloo, and a Bachelor of Art in Visual Art with a Concentration in Curatorial Studies from Brock University (First Class Standing). She is the recipient of several awards including the Keith and Winifred Shantz Internship Grant, Sylvia Knight Award in Fine Arts (co-recipient), Ontario Graduate Scholarship, and a President’s Graduate Scholarship from the University of Waterloo. In 2012 she interned with sculptor and installation artist Soo Sunny Park at Dartmouth College. She has shown her work in Canada and the United States in numerous exhibitions, including: the Hamilton Supercrawl, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, University of Waterloo Art Gallery, Thames Art Gallery, Rodman Hall Arts Centre, Mississauga Living Arts Centre, Hopkins Centre For the Arts at Dartmouth College, the Art Gallery of Windsor, Centre 3 for Print and Media Arts, Ryerson Image Centre, and Museum London. She currently teaches at the University of Waterloo.
She recently completed a permanent public art installation commissioned by the City of Kitchener for the Bridgeport Community Centre titled Pieces of Light.
