In her recent work, Helen explores the consequences of the irreversible effects of explosive entropy on architecture. The destructive impulse forces static structures into dynamic motion and sweeps structural masses along with it. At the same time, momentum no longer retains any physical value, it loses its connection to the homogeneity of space and breaks the closedness of the system.

Helen Shulkin is an emerging artist based in Hamburg / Germany. Her work represents posturban spaces deeply inspired by architecture, in which she envisions the beginning of a new illusory era, where the cities will become a cluster of moving dimensions scattered in a light and abstract spatial shapes.
Visiting contemporary cities and looking for locations of deep transformations in terms of architectural structuring, Helen tries to find which spaces are most susceptible to change, what are the prevalent portrayals of postobjects, how are those transformations perceived in human awareness, and which technological structures maintain their entity.
Helen’s work bundles high-tech and disrupts traditional tectonics. As a result, the spatial objects take on an incredible plasticity, a combination of volumes and shapes in a colorful kaleidoscope of postmodern styles. The spaces are explored through her individual aesthesis, that is a fundamental metaphor in describing of her own interpretations, representing a new mode of experience covering both perception and sensation of a postmodern architecture.
Helen Shulkin was born in Belarus. She graduated in 1995 from a Classical Art School, Molodechno. In 2001 she finished a Fine Art and Drawing Degree at the Belarusian State University Minsk under professor Shikulov. Since 2017 she lives and works in Germany.
