Showcase: Helene Kazan

Helene Kazan is a multidisciplinary artist, who across her practice uses research and archival material to generate moving image and multimedia installations.

A Domestic Image of Preemption is a multimedia installation that sets the ordinary image of the domestic space against a complex conceptual framework of preemption.

The slow moving works reveal the conditions inside the home as it transforms, exposing the approach of a catastrophic breaking point, and creating a narrative around how and why the original photographs were taken.

Helene Kazan holds BA in Fine Art Painting from Wimbledon School of Art and a Masters in Research Architecture from Goldsmiths College, London. She is currently a Ph.D candidate at the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths.
