Helen’s work combines real events with fictitious narratives to produce video, sound and installation. By constructing and imagining scenarios, often making use of the category of the absurd, she looks to investigate social structures and the political subtext of daily routine, focusing on affects and emotions, labour and the body.
During her residency at IZOLYATSIA, Helen will research the Soviet Ukrainian mosaics. On November 12, at 7 PM, Helen will host her artist talk at IZONE Creative Community (Naberezhno-Luhova, 8).
Helen Anna Flanagan’s residency is possible with support from the SWAP: UK / Ukraine artist residency programme co-organised by British Council Ukraine and Liverpool Biennial. The programme aims to connect artists from Ukraine and the UK and support their professional development and internationalisation.
