Natasha is a Cork-based interdisciplinary artist of Irish/Dutch descent with a fine art and extensive movement background (dance, physical theatre, aerial etc).

Her practice embraces film, installation, archive, drawing, writing, performance and sound.

She joined Outlaw studios after the closure of her art studio space in Sullivans Quay in 2017. She is also a Sample Studios creative member and an Arts Council 2020 Next Generation artist. 

She has presented work, solo and collaboratively, in numerous events across Ireland/Europe.

The artist's life/roots often underpin the work contemplating themes of self/society including identity, isolation, institution, legacy, transience, perception, polarity, pathos and play. With a surreal, spectral and sincere aesthetic, Bourke continually refines the strands of her practice and poetic language, whilst maintaining an open process.

Her first feature film, Concrete Keys, had a sell-out premiere at Cork International Film Festival in 2022 and has since been screened at the Irish Film Institute, SIRIUS Arts Centre, Midleton Arts Festival and Triskel Cinema Cork.

Her 2023 series of short films, Basement Cabaret, is a poetic response to the mass eviction of 25 households from an 18th Century apartment block in Cork City, following the eviction ban lift in Ireland.

As a mariner, Bourke is fascinated with making water-based work.

Over 2020/1, she devised and performed _T.U.G! Litter Womb_ in a derelict sea bath in Dublin for Kirkos Ensemble's _Biosphere_ and on a 40-foot currach in Derry for _Echo Echo_ festival.

More recently her solo show, Kilter, Matter and Ghosts, as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2024, took place entirely in the Gus Healy Swimming Pool in Cork.
