- Artist in Residence -

Helen Edling is a Swedish artist living and working in Newcastle. She likes to play and to build & make things. When she makes art she experiments with ideas, thoughts and things that she finds on the street and this could end up as almost anything; drawings, sculptures, and string puppets as well as outdoor interventions and curatorial projects. She is interested in imagination, anticipation and curiosity, what people think and why they do things and what it is that makes the world not work as well as it could do.
