Helene Nymann’s practice addresses the concept of embodied knowledge and the ways in which associative images stimulate memory. Applying mnemonic devices and memory-systems to image-making, 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 create memories for more sustainable futures.
Helene Nymann has exhibited work at The New Museum, New York; Fridman Gallery, New York; and Kunsthal Aarhus, Denmark, among others.helenenymann.com
