She regularly works off-site, engaging with feminist thinking around landscape, community, knowledge and sound. Recent commissions include Radar, Nottingham Contemporary and the National Trust.

Nastassja Simensky is an artist based in Nottingham and Fine Art Lecturer at Nottingham Trent University. She often works with non-artist collaborators and her interdisciplinary practice is embedded in specific geographies where social, natural and technological territories have become part of an increasingly entangled ecology.
Together they collaborated as part of Sound and Music’s 2019 Composer-Curator cohort to produce an interdisciplinary work, SHERDS: Five Verses on Six Sacks of Earth. Formed of three overlapping versions of the piece in performance, film and audio, the work was developed through a residency on an archeological dig, and created through a layered approach including text, field recordings, composition, improvisation and design.
