Henriette Hellstern works with the body as a fulcrum. It shows in the diversity of infinite variety of configurations and highly expressive strokes. She graduated from Funen Art Academy in 2011 and is already a well-known name at home and abroad. She has won several art awards and in 2015 she received The Danish Art Councils working grant for continuing practice. Welcome to a strong interpretation of the future challenges in Gallery NB.
A quiet riot has been simmering in you for a long time, now it burns. The bubbles have been just below the water surface and now the water boils, it overflows. Your limit is reached. You will not just see what happens you will act. Quietly but firmly you move your body. Although you know this movement will be a landmark for you, your environment, the world, everything, it feels like you crawl ahead, something weigh you down, but there is no turning back. You'd rather die trying, knowing you at least tried than not try at all. It's time for a riot, something must be done. .
More simply, it is about the choices we must make. Whether we want to change things around us, and leave everything behind. It can also be your battle for example against the system, a war, a condition, a disease, an unfortunate pattern ...
We must at all costs avoid the hamster wheel, and we must always try to make things even better.
