Corinna Helenelund is a Finnish-Swedish artist working with sculpture and installation. She got an MFA from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts 2013 and has since then been living and working on the country side of Porvoo, Finland, and in Berlin. Her work has its base in the impossibility to fit and keep the morphing formlessness of life and all our emotional experience inside the human body and the squares of civilization. This includes both a pull towards intense emotional states with their distorted colors, proportions and perspectives, and an interest in environments that alter our sense of being through incomprehension and bewilderment.
