Helga Wretman

Helga Wretman is a Swedish artist based in Berlin. Her persona and image become like design elements in works that toy with the tropes of performed actions. In her works she also takes on the role of a marionette in a metaphorical sense. She uses these performative investigations to probe at the instrumentalisation of a world of products and consumptive coercion.
