Natasja Loutchko she/they (b.1983 Sweden) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Sweden. She/they holds a BA in Fine Art from Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden and a Meisterschülerin in Fine Art from Pr. Dpuglas Gordon Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
In 2014 I started the project CAVE3000 in Berlin. CAVE3000 was an exhibition project hosted in my apartment in Neukölln. The name was inspired by the iconic dark room club in the neighborhood as well as the ’cave’, the origin of projections and artist’s expression. The name refers to something ancient and at the same time the 3000 is a clear hint to the unknown future we are all heading to together. It has since its beginning hosted several exhibitions and collaborations. CAVE is hibernating in Sweden and is waiting to be reborn as CAVE in spring 2023 in Stockholm.
CAVE3000 opened as a project space in Berlin Neukölln in Natasja Loutchko´s studio/apartment in 2014. In March 2020 Lennartsson’s, An udder kiss ended the irregular shows at the apartment in Neukölln.
CaveInCloud was a collaboration with JUL ZABOWSKX an online Virtual Reality CAVE3000 unity game you can play on your computer. It is a mashup of weird, fragmented documentation of some projects hosted in the cave.

Part of the Collab SPIT
with artist Marta Orlando and Clementine Roy
Natasja Loutchko, Marta Orlando and Clémentine Roy met each other in the darkroom of Ficken 3000, Berlin in 2017. Subsequently their singular artistic practices have merged into some common groups of interest, like building up collective situations and exploring the boundaries in-between. In 2020 they founded SPIT, a collective project that through video, performance and writing aims to challenge the vision of both the singularity and plurality, queering their collective frame towards expressing new forms of behavior.
