Cold Frame (2019)
This work was made specifically for Pennings Foundation and will be exhibited for the first time during Helen's exhibition 'A Hiding Place in Waking Dreams', on show at Pennings Foundation from May 11 - June 22.
Cold Frame consists of 66 panels of plexiglass, onto which the image of a small cold frame (greenhouse) for protecting young plants is printed.
Enlarged to the size of a greenhouse, each panel makes reference to both the panes of glass in an actual greenhouse and early photographic camera plates.
The zucchini plant growing inside takes on a human scale, simultaneously humorous and poignant.
