Helene Førde is an interdisciplinary artist working with installation, sculpture, sound, moving or interactive elements, and performance. A recurrent feature of her work is that she uses a site sensitive approach.

Førde is interested in exploring perception, awareness, memories, context, and the particular history and character of a space. Her recent works also reflect on cultural history, traditions and patterns of living, in the face of new times, change and prevailing politics.

Helene Førde holds an MA in Fine Art from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design, 2014, and completed the Nordic Sound Art master program the same year. She has exhibited at, among others, Galleri F15, Moss, Norway; Møre & Romsdal Art Center, Molde, Norway; Skånes Konstförening, Malmö, Sweden; and has shown work as part of Bonn Hoeren and Beethovenfest, Bonn, Germany, and Liminaria: Coesistenze, Montefalcone, Italy. She is the winner of the sound art competition Sonotopia 2015. Førde has also conceived and curated a number of exhibitions in Italy.
