Mary Helena Clark is an artist working in film, video, and installation. Her work uses the language of collage to explore dissociative states through cinema, bringing together disparate subjects and styles that suggest an exterior logic or code. Using the transportive qualities of cinema – rhyming sound and image, the constructed spaces of montage – her films explore shifting subjectivities and the limits of the embodied camera. Her work has recently been exhibited at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Germany, JOAN, Los Angeles, Kadist, San Francisco, the 2017 Whitney Biennial, New York, Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Finland, e-flux, New York, Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius, Lithuania, Grazer Kunstverein, Graz, Austria, Laura Bartlett Gallery, London, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, and at festivals including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the New York Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, and the Hong Kong International Film Festival. This is her second exhibition at DOCUMENT.
