Intro
Thousands of beads are sewn onto an embroidery and transform the soft fabric into something new. Something heavy, stiff, swarming and glittering.
 

Artist list

Helena Lehtinen
Collecting, seeing, processing, doing. Fragments, memories, finding the meaning in the meaninglessness.
/
Helena Lehtinen

By choosing her materials based on what stories they carry and what memories they evoke, the artist starts a process where, carefully selected, elements are worked on and changed. Motifs are cut out and put together into new compositions with different meanings. 

Born in Lahti, Finland, in 1952, Helena Lehtinen is a founding member of the Finnish contemporary jewellery group Hibernate.
