There is little doubt that Helen Braund is one of the stellar talents crashing into earth’s artistic atmosphere right now.Its lucky that the universe is expanding because nothing will stop Helen and furthermore, there’s nothing she can’t do (well). Helen has proved it again with Space Explorer which opened at CCAS Manuka last night. This is a photographic journey but its also performative or as Alice put it so well, ” The human body is a work of art in itself, as a tool for creating art, and as a tool of performance.In Braund’s work the two are combined, the act of making a work of art, and interacting with it, is photographed, filmed, then drawn over and drawn from. Self-portraits reveal the artistic process, and expand the artistic space.” Space Explorer at  CCAS Manuka until 6 Novemeber. Go Helen !
