Dutch Artist Uses Tumbling Images of People and Possessons to Comment on Life

Listen to the Story

Dutch artist Helma Groot recently installed a mobile art exhibit of dangling, tumbling objects that appear to float across the walls of a walkway between Max & Erma’s and Cup O’ Joe at Port Columbus.

Groot lives in Columbus, graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design and studied in Amsterdam. She welcomes the help of her 14-year-old son Jongo and her 12-year-old daughter, Matisse n the cutting, sewing and painting of pieces for the display. The exhibit has a title appropriate to an airport, “Not My Baggage.”

Helma Groot is an artist in Columbus. Her exhibit, “Not My Baggage,” continues through November at Port Columbus.
