Natalie Doyle (b. 1982 in Hanover, Germany) lives and works in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Doyle is a multimedia artist and art educator. Her work explores notions of Sociology, altering cityscapes, experiences of the Sublime and is captivated by dormant underground cultures as well as the idea of generating temporary malfunctions within various social situations. Her work frequently takes shape in some form of performance and is often multifaceted in nature.
Part Pop artist, part underground appropriator, Doyle’s work critiques facets of Metamoderism, investigates notions of semiotics and memetic engineering as well as examining popular culture, constantly striving to create works that are bold, and at times immersive but always with a subtle twist of humour.
Solo shows include: Auld Reekie Ghost Rave Tour, The Bothy Project: Pig Rock Bothy. Individual residency on the grounds of Modern One, Edinburgh, Scotland (2014); You’ll Never See the Likes Again, independent intervention, Cash Generator, 11 Trongate, Glasgow, Scotland (2013)
