The dancer, through the Butoh spirit, confronts the origins of his fears: a dance which crawls towards the bowel of the earth. - Tatsumi Hijikata

The artistic practice of Copenhagen-based multi-disciplinary artist Helene Nymann (AKA “Ima”) 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. Nymann received her BFA (Hons) from Goldsmiths College, University Of London and her MFA from Malmø Art Academy, Sweden.
