Helen Maurer is an artist and educator, working primarily with glass, light and sound to create site-specific installations. She lives and works in London. Having spent many years living on a boat, water and reflection are recurring themes within her practice. Through experimenting with materials, research and conversation, Maurer endeavours to find a poetic narrative in response to a place/ idea. She originally studied Fine Art and Theatre and was a fellow at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art before completing an MA at the Royal College of Art. As well as making work for exhibition and commission, she enjoys collaborating with other artists and musicians.

Turn a Blind Eye was part of The Nelson Touch 2005, presented at the Royal Naval Museum in collaboration with Aspex Gallery and was curated by Victoria Preston. Helen Maurer created a telescope acting as a camera obscura - projecting a small image of a scene outside the building on to a flat surface in the museum. In Portsmouth Historic Dockyard she has hung a Nelsonic message encoded in flags which is inverted by the telescope - a symbol of distress. The installation is complimented with archive footage of events and marches shot in Trafalgar Square, the sight of Nelson's Column.
