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 in Dublin.
Her work has been shown internationally in both cinema and gallery spaces and she is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland (Film Bursary Award 2020) and by Fingal County Council. She was a resident at Fire Station Artists’ Studios in Dublin and Light Cone Atelier 105 in Paris in 2020, and at Hangar in Lisbon and Leitrim Sculpture Centre in Ireland in 2021.
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.
She is the co-founder of Stereo Editions, an independent publishing collective of artists’ editions and currently co-directs the LUX Critical Forum Dublin.
