Helga Fassonaki

Helga FassonakiWork: Celestial
Bio: Helga Fassonaki, a recent transplant to New York City, creates and curates sound and visual installations, group situations, films, and performances that utilize and question temporality, power structures, subcultures and the human body as a sculptor of sound in space. Floating between worlds of sound and visual art, Fassonaki borrows from one to set up the rhythms and pulses that inform the other. Her recent project Khal, which forms the basis of her Audacious Celestial installation, investigates the idea of a ‘living score’ by initiating a passage of visual scores, actions, and conversations between participating artists and the public. Iterations of Khal were recently exhibited at Glasshouse (Brooklyn, NY) and LACA (Los Angeles, CA), with future iterations to be presented in October 2015 at The Auricle Sonic Arts Gallery (Christchurch, NZ), and as part of Book of Scores at Disjecta (Portland, OR), at the Audio Foundation Gallery (Auckland, NZ), and Nga Taonga Sound & Vision (Auckland, NZ).
