Nikki Woolsey (b. 1983, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) graduated from OCAD University in 2008.  Her sculptures consider the perceived significance and categorization of objects. Unravelling these understandings, her materials are put through a process of intuitive reconfiguration and deliberate fabrication. Woolsey has been included in exhibitions at the Power Plant (More Than Two), Mercer Union (Push and Pull), and Pari Nadimi Gallery (Baleful), Toronto, Canada. As a frequent contributor to the touring art event Doored, Woolsey has shown sculpture in Los Angeles, New York City, and Rotterdam. In 2010, she collaborated with art duo Life of a Craphead at a residency and exhibition at Hotel Maria Kapel in Hoorn, Netherlands. Woolsey lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
