Verkligheten föds ur drömmar/Reality is born out of dreams
In the exhibition, Reality is born out of dreams, Helena Johard shows a subjective and irrational research of reality where unexpected readings and reflections are woven together to new fabulating truths. The works use intuitive methods and emotions to explore truth concepts created by authoritarian machineries including natural sciences, psychoanalysis and social norms. Drawings and paintings are used to explore new readings, where ideas are further taken into the public by installations and performances. By this practice she also aims to bypass the rational and objective boundaries associated with her own ongoing scientific research to create alternative stories where emotions and subjectivity can be harboured.
