Helena Wee

Helena Wee uses scientific knowledge as a tool to uncover hidden mental spaces. Utopian ideals in their embryonic states are followed through to imaginary futures of flawed failing dreamscapes. Parallel worlds, standing outside normal space, shift; constantly in flux. Childhood is postulated to be an amorphous medium through which adult perception is shaped. Multiply subjective paradigms of knowledge, technology and architecture are postulated as the latest stages of our evolution.

Recent research includes the effect of politics on knowledge production, the Chinese Space Program, Malaysian politics, and digital archives. She is an Other Asias Associate Artist and has exhibited her work in various places including The Courtauld Institute of Art in London, QUAD in Derby, Tate Britain, The Digital Fringe Festival (Melbourne) and in Basal. Her video work is in the BFI National Archive. Co-curating and co-producing credits include projects for Secret Cinema, Future Cinema, Rich Mix (London) and Art Licks Weekend.
