Eriksen, Helen

Socially engaged art practice with installation and text production

My work orientates towards forms of collaboration that investigate the artists role in society and is typically post-studio practice in social contexts. I am part of the University of Agders research groups: Art and Social Relations and Art and Children; my PhD thesis focuses on ethics and aesthetic judgements in post studio art practice.

I have an ongoing collaboration in Tenthaus Artist Collective with Ebba Moi and Stefan Schröder in which investigate artists potential in the educational system, curate and run Tenthaus Oslo project space.

I also write, make installations and sculptures.
