Nicky Assmann 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 StartPoint Prize 2011 (Honorary Mention) & the Artificial Light Award on Reflection (2010). She has presented her work at V2_Institute (NL), TAG (NL) and in exhibitions at Wood Street Galleries (Pittsburgh, US), Quartier 21 (Vienna, AT), Exit Festival (Paris, FR), ISMAR/SHIFT Festival (Basel, CH), ]Interstice[ (FR), Almost Cinema (Ghent, BE), 5 Minutes Museum (NL), STRP Festival (NL), 5 Days Off Media (NL), Future Textiles (DK), Biennale of Carrara (I) & performed at festivals like TodaysArt (NL) & 5 Days Off (NL).
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.
