Harriet Hellman, Anthropocene wave

Harriet Hellman, Anthropocene wave

42 x 20 x 30 cm, stoneware and porcelain clay, 2020.

Harriet's practice is centred on her concerns with coastal erosion and rising sea levels. Her works celebrate imperfection and impermanence, while reflecting on ecological fragility. She often works in collaboration with the landscape and sea, using film to record her performative interactions with the unfired clay in the landscape. Taking some of her work to the coast, offering a deliberate exchange, returning some days later to see if any of the work has come back. Sometimes it has been transformed, ‘a gift from the sea’. Harriet has a BA in Fine Art/Sculpture, a Ceramics Diploma at City Lit and an MA at the Royal College of Art, following a 16-year career in the Film industry.
