Art discipline: 
Nicky Assmann explores in her work how the body with all its senses perceives and relates to objects and spaces and is interested in the mental process and physical activity of seeing. She refers to scientific research and natural phenomena and experiments with the properties, behaviour and aesthetics of solid and liquid materials. 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 self-made instruments & objects, video, AV-performances and kinetic light installations. With these spatial installations she creates dynamic and temporary spaces in which the sensorial embodied experience takes a central point.
Important projects / Exhibitions: 
She was nominated for the 2015 Prix de Rome and her work Solace gained an Honorary Mention in the 2011 StartPoint Prize. Assmann has exhibited her work in a solo show at TENT Rotterdam and in group exhibitions at the Saatchi Gallery [London], National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Wood Street Galleries [Pittsburgh], Art Rotterdam Week, Quartier 21 [Vienna], V2_Institute for the Unstable Media [Rotterdam], Exit Festival [Paris] and the Biennial of Carrara.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Media & Culture [Major Film Science] from the University of Amsterdam and a Master in ArtScience from the Interfaculty of the Royal Conservatoire & the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
