Nastasha joined Kettle’s Yard in 2018 as a Visitor Assistant and has since undertaken the role of Full Time Duty Manager, ensuring the smooth running of Front of House on a day-to-day basis.
Before coming to Kettle’s Yard, Nastasha worked for many of the University of Cambridge Museums as an Audience Researcher alongside her previous role of Assistant Producer at Cambridge Junction. She has a BA in Fine Art from Cambridge School of Art and continues her practice where possible, focusing largely on printmaking.
Nastasha’s favourite thing about Kettle’s Yard:
One of my favourite sculptures in the House is Sleeping Fawn (1913) by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska. It really highlights the essence of Kettle’s Yard – that art is to be enjoyed in one’s home. On a plinth, we might admire the materials used and the skill of the artist. However, in the House with Sleeping Fawn resting on a low wooden table, we peer at the artwork through a vase of dried wheat and have to remind ourselves that it is indeed a sculpture and not a living creature taking a moment to rest.
