About & CV

Nimmi is a site-responsive artist. Her works evolve through living into a place and gathering  sensations. The questions, perceptions and reflections that arise through this process become her materials.

This way of working, from inside to outside, loosens the ties to a particular medium. Using this methodology Nimmi has created text-based works, live performance, sound-art, videos, installations, etchings and photographs.

Nimmi’s work take us beyond the mundane moments of the everyday; in her close-noticing of a place she asks us about the close-noticing we give to our own lives.

 

Nimmi gained an MA, with Distinction, in Interdisciplinary Arts (Social Sculpture) at Oxford Brookes University in 2011. She graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art from Oxford & Cherwell Valley College, Banbury, in 2009. Until 2009 she worked as a GP in West Oxfordshire.
