Helina Metaferia

Silver Spring, MD

Helina Metaferia’s work considers the integration of the body with its environment through the acts of building, mapping, and marking. Through the act of empathy, she creates performative and ritualistic actions, installations, drawings, and sculptural forms that respond to personal and historical experiences within the context of a site. While in residence at Bemis, Metaferia is interested in developing a series of site-specific installations and sculptural performances that integrate her body with the landscape to investigate the temporal aspects of performance art, the body, the city, nature, and life itself.
