Jacques Nimki works from and within the urban landscape, using mainly weeds and flowers as a way of exploring how we perceive others and ourselves in specific environments. Each work is about the particular site. Researching and ‘walking’ an area Jacques collects information in a deliberately unstructured way. He returns to these areas to collect plants for drawing, flower pressing and seed collecting. He uses a variety of sources including printed and electronic media, abandoned shop-bought flowers and images of populist decorative flora captured in domestic settings.
Jacques Nimki has created a new artwork in the grounds of the National Centre of Early Music with the donation of bags by people who live and work in York..
