Eva´s work is often reflecting the exhausted human, how the man perceives himself, the everyday and the social discourse. Ghosts of a bastard craft are lingering in the work, but as a way of replication and distortion within a historical context. She often plays with humour where the hope and hopelessness play against each other and what is left are questions on how valuables and values are perceived and created. Eva works with the notion of the replica, fact or fictional environment where she constructs performances, live or within the setting it self. Eva lives and works in Reykjavik and Athens. She is co-founder of A – DASH (www.a-dash.space), artist studios and exhibition space in Athens as well as co -founder of Places (www.stadir.is) an art biennale in the West of Iceland.
