This exhibition presents a new and recent body of work by internationally
acclaimed artist Helen Sear, whose practice can be characterised by her
exploration of the crossover between photography and fine art.


Helen Sear has exhibited around the world and was the first female

artist selected to represent Cymru yn Fenis/Wales in Venice with a solo

exhibition at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015. Producing conceptually

rigorous work, her current practice incorporates photography, sound

and video within a sculptural context, exploring the potential of the

artwork to activate and elicit feeling.

Her practice has evolved from a fine art education in performance, film

and installation work in the late 1970's and 80's and is rooted in an

interest in Magic Realism, Surrealism and Conceptual Art. With

photography a central subject in her work she often challenges the

dominance of the eye and the fixed-point perspective associated with

the camera lens, placing the viewer in intriguing new relationships with

the image.
