Helen Clare Chadwick was an English conceptual artist, who belonged to Young British Artists movement. She studied at Croydon College of Art, The Faculty of Arts and Architecture Brighton Polytechnic and then at the Chelsea School of Art. She has often been identified as a feminist, with several of her works addressing the role and image of woman in society, especially in her postgraduate days and alongside her colleague and friend Elaine Shemilt. The first major retrospective of Chadwick’s work was held in 2004 at the Barbican London before touring to Manchester, Denmark and Sweden. Richard Saltoun Gallery, London, held an exhibition opening May 2013 to mark what would have been her 60th birthday. Helen Chadwick died in 1996, after being infected by a virus, which resulted in heart failure.
