Helena Roden creates large scale sculpture for public spaces. Her works are situated in the landscaping around housing, parks, underpasses and schools and are made in response to and in conjunction with the people, history and natural world of each site. Commissioners include the London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Newham, Richmond and Brent, several housing associations, the BBC and the British Museum.
She also devises and runs people-centred visual art projects with a social purpose, for example to help generations interact or new residents integrate with existing communities. She is interested in how art relates to physical space, the environment and issues around regeneration, education and equality.
She has 20 years’ experience of delivering projects on time and on budget and is a skilled collaborator with stakeholders involved in the public realm.
