Helen Cammock

Archive Events & Talks (27 April 2017, 6.30pm - 8.00pm)
Helen Cammock works with moving image, photography, text, performance and installation. Within these various forms is her underlying interest and aim to consider how societal dissonance, that exists between the individual and collective experience embodies consequences of structural inequality.

Ideas around authorship and the appropriation, exchange, interruption and transference of ideas and thinking are used to explore the intersect between art, history, social change and politics. Her relationship between self-authored writing and found/archival material resurfaces again and again she is interested in this intersect and potential for new meaning and disjunct.

Helen has become increasingly interested in the idea of place – geography – and the journey that she has begun to make through different environments as an artist over the last year.

Helen Cammock studied BA Photography at The University of Brighton and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2011. Her practice uses photography, video, poetry, writing, printmaking and installation. Her work has recently been screened and exhibited at venues including the Serpentine Cinema series; as part of Tate Artists Moving Image Screening Programme, Tate Britain, and at Hollybush Gardens gallery, London.
