Helen Dowling, Burning Original Remix, 2015
Video HD, 35 Minutes


Helen Dowling (b. 1982, UK) works through a multi-disciplinary practice which engages with the capacity to transfer empathy and emotion within the medium of video. Rather than working with narratives, her videos, photographs and objects juxtapose basic elements such as rhythm, colour and sound to draw the viewer through a sequence of sensations that relate and build upon each other. She received her BA at Goldsmiths College, London and her MA at Slade School of Fine Art, London and attended the 2 year residency at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten.

Recent exhibitions include ‘Flesh of the World’, University of Toronto, ‘VISIO’, Villa Romana, ‘Euritmie’, The Castelvecchio Museum, Verona, ‘Open Studios’ Viafarini Artists in Residence, Milan, ‘Disabled by Normality’, DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague and ‘l’evento immobile’, Casa Masaccio, Tuscany. Future exhibitions in 2015 include solo presentations at Kazachenko’s Appartment, Oslo and M4, Amsterdam. Her current research project, investigating the possibilities of rhythmic entrainment in the context of moving image, has been awarded funding by the Mondriaan Foundation. Over the summer she will be artist in residence at the M4gastatelier, Amsterdam.
