Artist Natasha Caruana invites viewers to step inside her mother’s bedroom via a 360 degree VR work set against a backdrop of love, desire, health and our current age of excess.
Natasha Caruana’s art practice is grounded in research concerned with narratives of love, betrayal and fantasy. Significant to all Caruana’s work is the questioning of how today’s technology is impacting relationships.
The narrative running throughout the artwork is the story of excess but also of consequence. It addresses NHS cuts, pharmaceutical price inflation, the pressure to find ‘Mr. Right’, and the impact the barrage of young and beautiful images can have on mental health and consumer choices. Particularly, perhaps, for the older woman (Penny), handling the ageing of her own body.
