Helene Schmitz

(b.1960) Lives in Stockholm

Helene participates with the photo series Livingrooms.

In this work, we encounter Helene’s childhood home after it was ravaged by a fire. The photographs are powerful and possess both sublime beauty and painful darkness. Fire, the devouring force of chaos that can destroy the ordered, the safe, the structured, is depicted in Helene’s images. It is just just these forces outside the human sphere of control that are essential in Helene’s art and motifs.
