Natacha Horn was born in Brussels, Belgium to an African-born Indian mother and a Danish-Belgian father. She has travelled extensively, living in Paris, New York and (currently) London.
Initially trained as a journalist, Horn began experimenting in 2003 with digital media, leading to her becoming a recognised creative animator and promotional film maker for leading brands such as Nokia, Lanvin, Galliano, Rugby World Cup 2003, Canal+, DeBeers, Clyde&Co and the United Nations (Combatting Conflict-Related Sexual Violence 2014) etc. She was Creative Director for Elle Belgium, OTI New York and most recently has directed music videos for leading English singer-songwriter Tanita Tikaram.
In 2017 she created and directed her first Short Film, ‘Swing’, which was selected at 29 international festivals and won 13 awards, including - LIFF London Independent Film Festival, New York International Women Festival, CIFT Toronto Independent Film Festival, Berlin International Art Film Festival.
From 2003, Horn began to direct her creative focus towards painting and drawing. Her latest work, begun during the lockdown of 2020, explores the gestural vocabulary of marks and colour, made with energy and meaning. These marks, often resulting in compositions on the edge of chaos, deal with personal experiences and states of emotion, and are often executed on sleepless nights.
Her recent work has moved towards combinations of installation, sculpture, painting & video.
