Natacha Donzé

Natacha Donzé is a Swiss artist born in 1991 in Boudevilliers, Switzerland. In her paintings, she deconstructs power structures of institutional, political, and commercial systems by taking fragments from these orders and embedding them in her visual worlds without hierarchy. Donzé combines pop culture references, such as architectural elements from films, with scientifically influenced images and brings them to the canvas using meticulous brushwork and airbrush techniques.

Rather than treating the surface as an interface to an illusory pictorial space, Donzé's focus is on the surface of the canvas, on which dimensionless spaces unfold in strong colors. Her work explores the influence of humans on their environment and creates interfaces between our own reality and an imaginary representational space in her paintings.

Donzé's work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions at Kunst(Zeug)Haus in Rapperswil-Jona (2022), Musée des Beaux-Arts in La Chaux-de-Fonds (2021), and Unit110 in New York (2018). Her work has also been featured in group shows at the MCBA in Lausanne (2023), the Kunstmuseum Appenzell as part of the Vordemberge-Gildewart Fellowship (2023), CAPC Bordeaux (2022), and Hagiwara Projects in Tokyo (2021), among others. In 2023, Donzé was nominated for the Swiss Art Awards in Basel. She was the recipient of the Kiefer Halblitzel Prize for Young Artists in 2019, and in 2018, she was awarded the Young Artist Prize of the Museum of Art in La Chaux-de-Fonds, which is awarded as part of the Biennale of Contemporary Art.
