Helen Clarke

Helen Clarke is a visual artist currently studying at the Royal College of Art.

 

My work comprises sculpture and installation, referencing ideas of production processes, consumption and the nature/culture dichotomy. My practice is directed by a playful, process-based approach in which the materials take the lead, predominantly using casts taken from everyday objects found in and around the domestic environment. The intricacy and design of these objects, most often single use items destined for landfill, pose questions of value, beauty and permanence.  Through a process of meticulous replication and material transformation, internal voids and structures become strange new objects, taken out of their everyday context they become symbolic of the tropes of modern life.
