Heleen Blanken

Heleen Blanken

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the moving visual art of Dutchwoman Heleen Blanken must be worth entire books. Quickly going from a Fine Art graduate at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam to an established member of the visual art world, Heleen’s work really speaks to people thanks to its true sense of invention and intrigue. Her modus operandi is to take great inspiration from nature and science and combine the two worlds into new and captivating forms that really engage onlookers in an emotional fashion. As well as having performed her spectacular visual shows at festivals like Lowlands and clubs like Trouw (where she is resident at three regular nights). Heleen also tours with Ben Klock for his Klockworks showcases, has made her own film to accompany the music of Jeff Mills and made visual impressions for the recent Inertia Compilation on Delsin’s Ann Aimee sub label. With her work Heleen, aims to visually deconstruct some of the dominant artistic dichotomies of our time, such as the traditional versus the modern, the natural versus the industrial and analogue versus digital. Every bit of film or imagery she uses is created by her, from scratch, and has been showcased in clubs, festivals and theatres around the world. For immersive visual experiences that draw on many disciplines there are few finer artists out there than Heleen Blanken.
