United Kingdom

Biography
British artist Helen Gorrill, focuses on the so called feminist art. A lecturer, curator, art historian, good scholar, the artist feeds her creations with her different skills. She obtained a degree in design from the School of Fine Arts in 2009, Helen Gorrill also holds a Ph.d in contemporary British painting. She is the coodinator of the group "The Feminist Art Project" based in the United Kingdom (at Rutgers University) which focuses on the aesthetic, intellectual and political impact that women have had on visual art, art history and the artistic practice. Helen Gorrill gets her theories from Michel Foucault (his criticism of the regulation of bodies) and from Hegel (with his dialectic of the master and the slave). She gets inspired by Pop art, particularly by Andy Warhol. Helen Gorrill deciphered the post-feminist concepts, the repercussions of a patriarchal society, power and control. Her researches focuses on the making of patriarchy by male scripts (the bible and the popular culture). She reverses the social norms by demanding the construction of a cultural state and non a natural state. Hemen Gorril points at the place of women-artist at the heart of a patriarchal society. Helen Gorril draws her inspiration from sculpture and embroidery (linked to collective imagery and to the female figure) to shape a subvesive, subtle and meticulously constructed art. The aesthetic emotion when facing refinement is accompanied by questions and a political momentum. Her work has been the object of controversy, an indication of an artist who challenges and disturbs to shake our ideals. Helen Gorril's work has been exhibited in numerous private and public collections everywhere around the world. She has obtained several residencies in order to deepen her researches: Paris (2011), Isle of Skye (2012), Czech Republic (2012), Paris, (2013), Milan (2013), Naples/Ischia, New York-Brooklyn (2014).
