Salinda Nichols

Salinda Nichols is a conceptual interdisciplinary artist residing in Devon who creates dance, film, and performance art in a large breadth of contexts. In her work she explores the idea of the micro and macro body. From cell division, to the scars our life has left on us, to the mental state from one’s experience, she investigates the space where film, art, and movement meet. Nature in contrast with industry is featured prominently in her work, as is the juxtaposition these elements have with the moving body. Coming from a background of dance and art, she utilizes her unique experiences to help create authentic pieces of work that speak on a multitude of levels. Salinda holds her MA in Contemporary Dance from the London Contemporary Dance School, where it was awarded with Merit. Her video dance work has been featured in the Journal ‘Cinewomen’ which celebrates Independent women filmmakers and has been shown at various galleries across the UK, USA, and Europe while her performance work has had similar reach. After taking 2018 off to creatively reset Salinda is already working on her next video dance project and is looking forward to carving out space for her work in the South West.
