Helena Hunter

Helena Hunter is an artist, writer and researcher based in London. She works at the intersections of poetry, art and science to address the critical ecologies of environmental change. Her ongoing work with freshwater and marine ecologies involves collaboration with environmental scientists on issues of river health and ocean modelling (Sensitives Steam, Arts Catalyst, 2021; Hydromancy, John Hansard Gallery 2021). Her current research investigates the relationship between poetry and algae, and how an ecology that embraces multiple scales, temporalities and forms of address can help rethink poetry in the Anthropocene. Her artwork has been presented at Tate Modern, Barbican Art Gallery, ICA, Gasworks, Delfina Foundation, Gazelli Art House, Whitechapel Gallery, The Showroom, BALTIC and MIMA. She has published her critical and creative writing in Reliquiae (Corbel Stone Press), MAI Journal, Something Other and forthcoming MAP Magazine, APRIA Journal and Contemporary Journal. Her work has featured in Posthuman Ecologies, edited by Rosi Braidotti and Simone Bignall (Rowman & Littlefield International 2019), Remain, edited by Jussi Parikka, Ioana B. Jucan and Rebecca Schneider (University of Minnesota Press 2018) and forthcoming in Investigating Cultures of Equality (Routledge 2022).
