About me

 

Helen Marriage, Artistic Director of Artichoke, one of the UK’s leading independent production companies, has produced some of the UK’s most talked about art events ranging from Royal de Luxe’s The Sultan’s Elephant, to Antony Gormley’s Fourth Plinth project One & Other, and Peace Camp made by international theatre director Deborah Warner and actor Fiona Shaw for the London 2012 Olympic Festival. Artichoke recently produced the Lumiere festivals in Durham and Central London in January 2016. Artichoke’s interests lie at the conjunction of art, politics, communication and transformation. By creating a platform for an artist’s most impossible ideas and inserting their work into the everyday life of society, Artichoke achieves high impact through massive unexpected disruption to daily life. This work has taken the company into an examination of the nature of control over the public domain and the ways in which our cities and landscapes can be re-imagined, if only temporarily. It is the company’s belief that while its transformation of the landscape is ephemeral, the transformation of the individual witness leaves a permanent legacy. Helen was granted a Loeb Fellowship at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard, from 2012-2013 and an MBE in the 2016 New Year’s Honours list.
