Helen’s work explores who we are; the genetic and social forces that form us. Using images of children, their toys and fairy tales as tools, she is questioning our relationship to the child we once were and the children among us. She is also asking questions about adult memories of childhood. What do we remember? How do these memories affect our beliefs about childhood? More importantly, how have these beliefs and fears affected our children?
