Hilda Hellström (b 1984 Gothenburg, Sweden) graduated from an MFA at the Royal College of Art in London in 2012. Her work has, among other institutions, been exhibited at Gothenburg Museum of Art, The British Craft Council, MAK Vienna, V&A, London Design Museum, MUDAC Lausanne and Shanghai Power Station Art Museum.
Her work revolves around our understanding of reality as purely subjective and investigates the sensuous aspects of life as opposed to the rational. Working with materials that, for the observer, often are unfamiliar, she plays with the undefinable in regards to materials, hierarchies, value systems and definitions. This has involved studies about what we classify as ‘natural’ in contrast to the man-made or artificial.
To emphasize the sensuous part of an object she has at times worked with the medium of film in relation to objects, in an attempt to captivate the audience in another world for a while.
Hellström currently lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
