Michelle Ussher


Michelle Ussher’s architectural installation Helovanorak explores the relationship between people and their surroundings. PICA’s Westend Gallery will be transformed into a cathedral-like space containing a series of passages and rooms, the surfaces of which are tattooed with impressions from the artist’s conscious and unconscious memory. Referencing Hector Guimard’s and William Morris’ Art Nouveau, and featuring ghostlike figures echoing Edvard Munch (along with untold other sources) Ussher’s Helovanorak is a community-centred space in which personal and private experiences crossover.
