Eva Schlegel
Artist

Conceptual artist Eva Schlegel lives and works in Vienna. Born in Hall, Tirol in 1960, she studied at the Academy of Applied Arts, Vienna with Oswald Oberhuber. Until 2006 Schlegel was Professor of Art and Photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. In 2011 she was commissioner of the Austria Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

Her multifarious practice encompasses photography, paintings, installations and public projects. Focusing on themes of materiality and the ephemeral and how the interaction of the two influence the audience’s perception of space. Past works included a kinetic rotor installation based on Morse code, large scale photographs of blurred female figures and intimately-sized pornographic paintings. With these works, Schlegel traces the ephemerality of codification – from the translation of recently decommissioned military code to the constructed image a woman creates for herself. She is represented by Maestro Arts for special projects.
