Helen Lee//June 2019
Helen Lee is a visual artist based in Chicago, United States. She stayed at Fish Factory in the beautiful month of June.
Helen recently completed her MFA in performance studies at School of Art in Chicago. Helen´s original plan was to revisit her thesis and work on its aspects, but once she got to Iceland her plans have changed. She worked with taxidermy on and off for the past years and found a little fjord in East Iceland a perfect place to take it up again. While creating the objects Helen was inspired by Max Ernst collages, but also her childhood memories, the process of ageing and dealing with the inevitable death.
