Nathalie Quagliotto is a Canada based conceptual artist living and practicing in Toronto, Ontario, who is keen on creating art that disrupts conventional notions of behavior in the gallery or public space context. She uses humor, play, and disruptive situations to comment on the criticality of the art environment.

She uses the color “Safety Yellow” in her work because of its public meaning of caution, awareness, and attention. Often using double or multiple identical objects in projects as a signifier of a push and pull situation to address co-operation and problematic relationships.

For THIRD SHIFT 2017, her central concept remains, as you will find Nathalie roaming around Saint John inconspicuously handing out dozens of free yellow repackaged fused lollipops as a disruptive and quirky nighttime snack on August 18th!
