Helen Chadwick, one of Britain's most provocative contemporary artists, died suddenly from heart failure in March at the age of only 42. She was the artist behind such controversial pieces as Piss Flowers, a series of bronzes cast from the shapes made when she and her partner urinated in snow, and Cacao, a gurgling chocolate fountain.
With this compilation of photographs and archive footage, including Super 8 film of her early seventies performance art, Matthew Collings pays tribute to her life and work, and introduces a revised version of Chadwick's 1992 film about the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, made for the BBC2 series Artists' Journeys.
