Heleen Blanken lives and works in Amsterdam. She is working across the media cinematography, photography and installation art. She holds a Bachelor in Fine Art from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.
Her artistic practice is deeply influenced by the complexity of the separation between humanity and the natural environment. She explores the different layers of our aesthetic perception of the natural world. Defining traditional artistic dichotomies like the organic vs. artificial and analog vs. digital. In her work she raises questions on how we contemplate ideas of nature, inviting us to question these and absorb alternative visions.
Her work has been shown internationally in curated shows at institutes like Nxt Museum, Stedelijk Museum, Gallery Ron Mandos, Rembrandt House, La Gaîté Lyrique, Gropius Bau Berlin and Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal.
