Helen Blejerman

Helen Blejerman is a Mexican artist based in the UK. She investigates the nature of burials and the spiritual aspect of femicide survivors. In The Prayer, she builds models inspired by the structure of flowers growing in clandestine mass graves, where loose remains of women’s bodies have been found. She utilises the same glitter cardboard used by Mexicans to decorate local shrines – sites where people connect with the divine. Maquettes are transferred to the digital sphere whilst remaining on the threshold between absence and presence.
