Nicky Assmann (Rotterdam/The Hague) explores in her work how the body relates to objects and spaces and refers to the concept of “wearable space”. The skin, both visible as invisible is a recurring metaphor in her work and is extended into the space. This phenomenological approach results in the use of different media, like wearable technology (embodied instruments), performance, soap film and light installations. With these spatial installations she creates dynamic and temporary spaces in which the sensorial experience takes a central point.
Her work was nominated for the Artificial Light Award Reflection (2010) and she has participated in exhibitions at the Key of Life Festival (Leiden), 5 Days Off Media (Amsterdam), STRP Festival (Eindhoven), Future Textiles (Denmark), Biennale of Carrara (Italy) and performed at festivals like TodaysArt (The Hague), E-Pulse (Breda) and 5 Days Off (Amsterdam).
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Film Science and a Master in ArtScience from the Interfaculty of the Royal Conservatoire & the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
