Helga Info

 

 

 

Being an art filmmaker at heart, Helga Dorothea extends her talents working with everything from experimental short films to music videos and projected installation, with the occasional commercial commissions.  She works both with analogue and digital media, with a particular affection for handmade textures, visual illusions, personal histories, and the interplay between the natural and the mechanical.

Combining found images with her own footage, Helga creates short films that are usually situated somewhere between naive dreamscape and psychosocial commentary. Her current film practice explores aspects of performativity through a playful sense of the art of illusion. 

"I’m influenced by the sublime, the unknown, the surreal, the fleeting, the obsolete, the lost, the found, the meaningful and the whimsical."subliminal messages and their effects on the mind


The work also contained something of Derrida’s, ‘mal d’archive’, the fever of knowing, the burning passion for a haunting past, the promise of a secret forever hidden, overlaid with ghostly projections and phantasies.
