NINNOC is her documentary debut.
In this documentary you crawl in Ninnoc’s head. And find her in an empty school. Ninnoc struggles when she is in a group. She doesn’t just want to adapt to the others, but she’s also afraid of being excluded. Can you deviate in a group? Or will you then end up alone?
Niki likes to visualize the hidden world of thoughts and fantasies. She wants the viewer to be surprised or confused after seeing her stories. And preferably to doubt their own version of reality.
Niki lives in Amsterdam, studied photography at the New School University in New York, did an orientation year at the Rietveld art Academy in Amsterdam and studied communication science at the University of Amsterdam.
