Evelyn Bencicova works across genres, using a variety of techniques and sees the photograph as a means of formulating creative content rather than an end in itself. Bencicova is a visionary artist, who possesses something of an ancient wisdom and ability to meet the other person. Working from this, she manages to capture magical moments that become scorching photographic art.
“I am driven by an enormous interest in my fellow human beings, whom I study constantly. My works consist of many layers, both when I’m taking a portrait or, for example, creating a work in which the bodies of the models, usually my friends, form symmetrical architectonic compositions. On the surface, everything might appear harmonious but there are elements, often details, which cause friction. That might create a seemingly unpleasant or, I would rather say, unclear and contemplative image, inviting viewers to look deeper” says Evelyn Bencicova.
Evelyn Bencicova, born in 1992 in Bratislava, Slovakia, studied fine art and new media at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. The show also features the video ASYMPTOTE, created by Bencicova and Adam Csoka Keller, and nine-sum sorcery, made in collaboration with Mi†ra collective.
