FIRST I AM AN ARTIST MOTHER LOVER ACTIVIST BLOODY SPIRITUAL FLESH LOW HIGH BONE HUMAN BEING
HELENE TORP: I primarily work with video in the form of short films and performative works. I want to play and move the tension between the high and low in human exchanges , movement between wisdom and surface. In recent years, I especially focused in experimental animation works with the films Best Practice , Faith, Hope and Honesty and Friends.I focus on socially engaged and experimental content and tend to use personal experiences from my own life as a political , spiritual and culturally inquiring mind .... or soul. I have worked professionally with video and installations (since 1999) and have been exhibiting in museums, galleries and film festivals such as F-15 , Moderna Museet, National Drawing Biennale , National Autumn Exhibition - national and international venues for contemporary art and film.
