Work

+ Images from my piece ‘She was the Universe’ performed at SPILL Festival of Performance 2014 are now online!

+ I’ll be at //BUZZCUT// 2015 in Glasgow from 18 – 22 March, performing Union alongside Philip Bedwell. It’s my first time at //BUZZCUT// and I’m looking forward to it.

Watch

+ Marco Brambilla, Sync. I watched part of this in the Destricted collection of explicit art films. Montages of found footage – Sex, violence and voyeurism.

Reading

Various longreads I’ve loved this month

Alexander McQueen: Into the light, a beautiful look at the designer and his work.

+ I don’t care much for Taylor Swift but this piece on her belly button (of all things) talks about an interesting  ‘female navel taboo’ which I was not previously aware of.

+ Tanning, Training and Branding with the Bikini Bodybuilding Stars of Instagram

+ The Invisible Woman: A conversation with Bjork covers sexism, creativity, her new album.

She was the universe – Hellen Burrough at Spill Festival

Hellen Burrough - She was the universe

“The winds were wither’d in the stagnant air, And the clouds perish’d; Darkness had no need of aid from them — She was the Universe.”

She was the universe – A new piece inspired by darkness, apocalypse and the connection between the artist and the audience is part of the National Platform at this year’s SPILL Festival.
