Helena Gouveia Monteiro is a visual artist and experimental filmmaker from Portugal. She received her MFA from the ENSA Villa Arson in Nice in 2015 and lives and works between Dublin and Marseilles.
Concerned with the history of technical images and heavily influenced by experimental cinema and media archaeology, she creates films, books, and multi-media installations that engage different levels of visual and cultural recognition to question our perception of language and audio-visual experiences.
Her work has been shown internationally in both cinema and gallery settings. She is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and Fingal County Council and was recently awarded the Digital Media Residency at Fire Station Artists’ Studios in Dublin, the Light Cone Atelier 105 Residency in Paris for her film Purkyně’s Dusk, and the Portuguese Emerging Art 2020 (forthcoming catalog).
She is the co-founder of the artists’ editions publishing collective Stereo Editions and currently co-directs the LUX Critical Forum Dublin.
