Art is a communication of ideas from the artist to audience, but what happens when visual barriers are broken down, and how much does the artist rely on the observation of her work to complete it? She was the universe takes these questions as a starting point, and immerses both the audience and the artist in darkness, only able to see and sense fragments of each other. In this place of vulnerability and intimacy, an exploration of strength, sense and endurance unfolds. Hellen Burrough creates live art and performance work, using actions of physical trauma and small precise wounds to explore themes of femininity and feminism, romance, transformation and transgression. Most recently she has performed at Tempting Failure in Bristol and at Chelsea Theatre with Dominic Johnson, and for several years was a collaborator with Polish collective Suka Off.
