Artist list

Helen Britton
We are honoured to show an overview of 13 European years in the works of the great Australian artist Helen Britton.

"I am still roaming around finding things, hunting for and gathering materials, like I‘ve been doing for years. No shores here though, a few river banks and also heaps of junk. Europe: the residue of matter, contemporary and otherwise is exotic and plentiful, piled up in the flea markets, spilling onto the streets out of shops, being broken or discarded and crunched back into the earth for centuries. So from this mass of matter I assemble these collisions of design, these baroque, reduction resistant assemblages, these unruly aesthetic desires. There is a lot of pleasure here, and also a measure of aggression, seeking its meaning in the present, walking directly out of my lived experience. Making jewellery, I play out tensions and beautiful collisions in a small complex space, building miniature theatrical landscapes and emotional responses to the material world". Helen Britton
