Exhibition History
Katrine Helmersson often explores the tension field between contrasts such as male–female, fragile–solid, beautiful–threatening in her dreamy art objects and installations. Her body of work is characterised by an investigation of the relationships between material, object, space and viewer – often with sensual or erotic undertones. The material qualities of her works are important – sensual and tactile. The title, Drömmens navel [The Dream’s Navel], alludes to psychoanalyst
Sigmund Freud’s notions of the place from which the dream enters the unknown, beyond the reach of interpretation.
