Helena Bogucki | Stanley Street Gallery

Helena Bogucki

Helena Bogucki combines formed and found pieces that reflect a passing moment or conversation.

Her work begins in the field. Researching; taking samples; and collecting field notes from her explorations whilst revealing fragments of Western Australia’s history and her role within the portrayal of these narratives. She documents the collection and making process from her studio; the catalogued information and findings provide souvenirs that are often as valuable as the finished objects.
