Mary Helena Clark

Visual Arts Residency

Mary Helena Clark is an artist working in film, video, and installation. Her work uses the language of collage to explore dissociative states through cinema, bringing together disparate subjects and styles that suggest an exterior logic or code. Using the conventions of narrative, language, and genre, her films explore shifting subjectivities and the limits of the embodied camera. Clark’s work has recently been exhibited at DOCUMENT, Chicago; Künstlerhaus, Stuttgart, Germany; JOAN, Los Angeles; and the 2017 Whitney Biennial, New York; and at festivals including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the New York Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, and the Hong Kong International Film Festival.
