At Home: Nicky Broekhuysen


This is Nicky Broekhuysen in her studio, which also doubles as her bedroom. Nicky was born in South Africa, later moved to New Zealand, and end up in Berlin two years ago via a two year stint in Shanghai, where she first began to experiment with the stamping process you see in the two works behind her. The pieces, which can take up to two months to make, are all meticulously hand-stamped in the binary numbers 1 and 0, creating images which are disorganized and chaotic in detail, but cohesive when viewed in greater distance. Nicky’s studio was comparatively empty to what it had been before, as most of her pieces are being prepared to be exhibited in the following weeks. Next week she’ll be showing some of her pieces at VOLTA NY, the invitational solo off-shoot of The Armory Show, and following that an exhibition entitled “Between States, Into Light,” opening here in Berlin on March 11 at Pool Gallery.
