Helen Gorrill

Helen Gorrill's work is held in private collections worldwide and now included in New York Brooklyn Museum's Elizabeth A Sackler Center artabase, alongside The Guerrilla Girls, Tracey Emin, Annie Sprinkle, Miriam Schapiro, Judy Chicago and Pipilotti Rist.

Gorrill has exhibited nationally and internationally, and had her feminist and gender work featured in many publications. Her major solo show Deicide was a showcase of four years of feminist research: "Multimedia artist Helen Gorrill welcomed over a thousand spectators to the preview of her recent solo exhibition Deicide at Degree Art's Execution Room. Taking a political stand against the portrayal of women in art and religion, Gorrill's work has caused controversy, thought, and extreme inspiration."

Last year, Gorrill was shortlisted for the Cartazini Award in Paris, and this year has been shortlisted for the fourth international Passion for Freedom award, taking place in November 2012 at Unit 24 Gallery adjacent to Tate Modern.
