Nemo Nonnenmacher (b. 1988, Germany) lives and works between London, UK and Agios Nikolaos, Greece.

Nemo uses photography, digital sculpture and installation to explore how contemporary technologies affect our cultural identity, exploring notions around the material of a virtual body, investigating a “digital texture”. Initiating a discourse about the significance of the digital works and its implications for the understanding of the concept of our bodies, Nemo strives to propose a new politics of the image by merging the body with the phenomenon of 3D scanning.

His work has been exhibited throughout the UK, Germany and Italy. He has been shortlisted for the Tiffany & Co Outset Studiomakers prize 2017, selected for the Travers Smith CSR Art Programme and Metro Imaging Award 2017 and has been a fellow of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation since 2012.


He graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2017 and has been artist in residence at Summer Hall Galleries/Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop (2019), at Outset Contemporary Art Fund in Baker Street (2018) and at Unit 1 Gallery Workshop in London (2018).

From 2012 to 2017 he was a fellow of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation, exhibiting throughout Europe, including Prototypen at Opelvillen Art and Culture Foundation (Rüsselsheim, DE, 2017) and Fondazione Fotografia (Modena, IT, 2016).

Recent exhibitions include Authentic Spaces (Alte Nudelfabrik, Zeitz, DE, 2020), Onslaught Undone (Meno Parkas, Kaunas, LIT, 2020), The Same Tendencies (Summerhall Galleries, Edinburgh, UK, 2019) and Acts of the Plough (Artlicks Weekend, London, UK, 2019). ⁠
