Saturday 14 July 2018 – Sunday 28 October 2018
Opening Hours: 11am - 5pm

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, and her focus on the co-existence of the human, animal, and natural worlds. Consisting of works made since 2015 it is her most ambitious exhibition in the UK to date. 

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 high quality, conceptually rigorous work, her current work incorporates photography, sound and video within a sculptural context, exploring the potential of the artwork to activate and elicit feeling.

Her practice has evloved from a fine art education in performance, film and installation work in the 1980’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.
