Helena Wikström

© Elin Berge

In recent years, I have mainly worked with installations in which I mixed sculpture and video. I often collaborate with other artists, musicians or writers, such as in the exhibition under marken at gallery Syster in Luleå in 2021, where the writer Andrea Lundgren, the musician Linus Johansson and I started from a badger den and together created an underground world.

In 2018 I directed and animated the film Radio Black Peter together with Simon Öhman Jönsson and Bautafilm in co-production with SVT. It is a documentary story that tells how the first radio pirates, two forest workers from Lomsjö, challenged the radio monopoly while the security police chased them through the forests of Norrland.
