Dio Nostalgia III (2021).
Ilze Helgeland’s recent work has ruminated on the quotidian everyday: the trivial acts and objects that we start to forget through repetition. Time is elusive and as it passes, it seems that old technology becomes an important aspect of our lives. Her intention is to make such objects visible again, and honour them in retrospect. Helgeland tells the story of time through objects – the phenomenon of something slipping away in contemporary cultural consciousness, as items gradually disappear from our apprehension. The surroundings that define many human lives ultimately become abstracted, as time wears away context and social necessity.
