Harma Heiken

Harma Heiken’s large sculptures, featured in Hi-Fructose Vol.13 often depict images straight from newspaper headlines. The nearly life size sculptures feature her potent trademark synthesis of innocent, wide eyed children and horrific themes such as war, murder and sexual exploitation. By choosing to encapsulate these themes in the small, cherubic bodies of children, the work radiates a complex yet unsettling sense of taboo juxtaposed with a bright, cheery color palette. This visceral contrast provokes the viewer, whether as an emotional, moral challenge or as a disturbance of an innate political stance.
