Helena Arlock Wahlberg is a Swedish artist expressing herself through spatial design, architecture and music. She has a background as a graphic designer and musician apart from studies in design and architecture (MA, Spatial Design at The Royal Danish Art Academy).
Helena’s work stems from the details, the faint sensation, starting the exploration in the close then slowly expand. Through the perspective of the human, in the intimate experience of the space or piece. Where the hand meets the material, in the movement, the motion and emotion, the silence and the music. The spatial art are often a subtle performance in which the subject will partake. Where the sensory experience is central. Tactility, scent, sound and light are all present when she is composing a spatial piece.
The approach is similar when composing a musical piece. Starting from the body and out, in the nuances of a sound or a mood. Helena is a cellist since the age of 8 and has a love for analogue synthesizers and she is often combining the classical instrument’s vibrations with electronic instruments in her soundscapes.
She is also working at a more strategic conceptual level, with a background from both pitch work, retail branding, festival scenography and creating tools for creation and implementation of spatial concepts.
Helena is currently based in Malmö, Sweden.
