Helenelunds work has its base in the impossibility to fit and keep the morphing formlessness of life inside the human body, with a pull towards intense emotional states and their distorted proportions and perspectives and an interest in how inner stirrings warp our experience of the outer world while our surroundings pour their colors on us.
