Helena Aikin

For the last 15 years my work as visual artist has involved research on ancient civilizations, which I then recreate in the form of sculptures, paintings and installations. My purpose is to recover a cultural heritage from all 5 continents which I believe encapsulates transcendental, if cryptic messages for the 21st century. I have focused on abstract designs, specially age-old labyrinths which served as astronomical calendars, maps to the Afterlife, metaphors for the different stages of the human voyage or magical objects to attract fertility and auspiciousness. I also use ancient ritually naked figurines from different corners of the planet as a source of inspiration, recreating them in different media for my artistic installations.
