Helén Edling is born in Stockholm, Sweden. She received her MA Fine Art, from Newcastle University in the UK. Currently based in Norrtälje, Sweden
Helén base her work in ideas of play and improvisation and engage in projects ranging from drawing, sculpture, and interactive marionettes to outdoor interventions and theatrical site-specific work.
This multidisciplinary approach has evolved out of experimentation with found or easily accessible materials intertwined with a will to learn and to appropriate new ideas and concepts. With references to theatre and circus and with an interest in social systems and interpersonal hierarchies she creates open ended narratives and alternative orders which places the viewer in the centre, becoming the narrator, the director or the puppet master.
