London based artist filmmaker Helen Nias creates short experimental films in an effort to discover and understand more about the world and minds we inhabit. Shoot, Rewind, Splice, Remember is Helen’s first solo exhibition, featuring a selection of photographic stills created for her moving image work, a collection of short films from 2006 onwards, and a new video piece edited and screened on VHS.
Helen is fascinated by temporal and spatial perceptions; the differences between dreams and reality; how we perceive these experiences in the moment and through our memories; and our relationship with the future in an ever changing world – and this is reflected in her work.
Visitors to the exhibition will get a behind the scenes look at some of the still imagery, photographic and inkjet prints used to create Helen’s moving image work, which brings together a mix of analogue and digital media techniques. This includes animation of photo prints, photograms and digital stills, analogue and digital video, and super 8 and 16mm film.
Helen has a first class BA Honours degree in Video Arts Production from the University of the Creative Arts, Maidstone (2010), and now works at Pearson doing creative digital communications. Her short films have been screened at film festivals across the UK and Europe and Australia, including the London Short Film Festival, Cannes Lions, and Sheffield Doc/Fest.
