NT was nominated for Platform 2018 by Larry Achiampong.

Looking is not a simple task or action.
Every artist wants their work to be looked at.
Every artist courts the gaze of the viewer.

As an artist I am no different. I am interested in the awareness of the ‘gaze’ and the aspect of looking, whether it is by the artist, the camera lens, or the viewer, and the tension that arises from the courtship of the gaze by the subject-artist-lens. This extends into how strategies of disruption can interfere and interrupt the gaze, as well as bring about change. I am also interested in how the outcomes of such actions are then interpreted or misinterpreted. As a result of this approach, the media used have incorporated film, sound, performance, photography, installation and print.

NT is based in London, and studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins (2008-11) and the Royal College of Art (2011-13).
