Helen Cammock was born in 1970 in Staffordshire. She lives and works in Brighton and London. Cammock explores social histories through film, photography, print, text, song and performance. She is motivated by her commitment to questioning mainstream historical narratives around blackness, womanhood, wealth, power, poverty and vulnerability. Mining her own biography in addition to the histories of oppression and resistance, multiple and layered narratives, reveals the cyclical nature of histories. She was shortlisted for the 2019 Turner Prize and was awarded the prize along with the other three nominees.
