Nicky Murmann

My working process combines a variety of media – including text, sound, and visual material – to produce performances, sound pieces, or videos. I create safe environments in private, public or art spaces to facilitate conversations and storytelling. I embrace the power of vulnerability and intimacy to link people in different kinds of dialogue – through active listening, perhaps, or by sharing opinions.
