The artistic practice of Copenhagen-based multi-disciplinary artist Helene Nymann, addresses the notion of embodied knowledge and the way in which associative images stimulate memory. Interested in the borderline between the natural and the digital worlds, Nymann constructs performative environments in which the moving image, sound and sculpture make way for transformative arrays of consciousness, deepening the understanding of the fundamental aspects, by which we process information, store knowledge and how we create memories for more sustainable futures.
Having been awarded the Mads Øvlisen PhD scholarship with an Extraordinary Potential within Practice-based art, Nymann is currently a PhD student at the Interacting Minds Centre (IMC), Aarhus University and in collaboration with Kunsthal Aarhus, Denmark. Nymann received her MFA from Malmø Art Academy, Sweden and BFA (Hons) from Goldsmiths College, University Of London.
