Diadromí is an installation that portrays the refinement of a system. It creates a symbiosis between five small greenhouses. They function as a whole, drawing a relation between phenomena. Together the greenhouses represent an enclosed circular system to portray different stages of an ecosystem, mimicking the cause and effect of synergy. It symbolises the impact of growing ecological instability and the effect of various natural forces. Highlighting our human search to shift our perspective. The effect of the last greenhouse in the system, is not interfering with the cycle and is left open for interpretation.
Heleen Blanken is a visual artist and lives and works in Amsterdam. She is working across the media cinematography, photography and installation art. Her artistic practice is deeply influenced by the complexity of the separation between humanity and the natural environment. She explores the different layers of our aesthetic perception of the natural world. Defining traditional artistic dichotomies like the organic vs. artificial and analog vs. digital. In her work she raises questions on how we contemplate ideas of nature, inviting us to question these and absorb alternative visions.
