written by Katrin Heimann

Over the past two years, Katrin Heimann (AAU) collaborated with artist Helene Nymann, accompanying her artistic process towards the exhibition “Knots of Ecphore” via micro-phenomenological interviews.

Place it in one of the glass sculptures.” As part of the exhibition, Katrin and Helene are running interviews with visitors about the experience of participating in this work. If you happen to be in Copenhagen and want to be interviewed, write to and sign up!
