Helga Jakobson

With work that often incorporates detritus from her immediate atmosphere, whether components of the natural landscape or relics from her great grandparents’ homestead, Helga’s practice is a responsive and reflective attempt to quantify experience. Her practice often revolves around themes of philosophy, mortality, and the human experience. Her interests are in the hand-made, pseudoscience, and the role of the creative producer as responder, explorer and critical engager of the current cultural climates within which they exist.
