Helen Billinghurst


Helen Billinghurst is a multidisciplinary artist, educator, researcher and writer. With a background as a film maker, she now works within the expanded fields of painting and drawing. Her recent doctoral research at the University of Plymouth explored the intersection between studio practice and aesthetic walking. She currently lectures at Plymouth College of Art, and her research interests include the performance of making, site-specificity and embodied process. In 2014 Helen was resident artist for six months at High Cross House in Dartington, Devon. Recent solo exhibitions include 'Crossing England' (Ariel Centre, Totnes, 2016), 'Embodied Cartographies' (Walcot Gallery, Bath Fringe Festival curated by Fay Stevens, 2016), 'English Diagrams' (Royal William Yard, Plymouth, 2018) and 'Walking Diagrams' (Walking's New Movements Conference, University of Plymouth, 2019). Other recent commissions include an article for the catalogue of 'Dear Christine', (a touring exhibition about the life of Christine Keeler, by women artists, curated by Fionn Wilson, 2019).
