Helen Cammock explores history and storytelling through layered, fragmented narratives. Using video, photography, installation, print, and performance, she interrogates the ways in which stories are told, and acknowledges those who are rendered invisible by the hierarchy of histories. The artist’s own story also impacts her work. Having worked as a social worker before becoming an artist, she remains attentive to the structural oppression and inequality across communities she saw during this time. Cammock’s work is prefaced by writing, borrowing the words of others to use alongside her own. Cammock was born in Staffordshire, UK, in 1970, and lives and works in Brighton and London. She is represented by Kate MacGarry, London.
