Éva Mag

Éva Mag received her artistic education at the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm where she graduated in 2015. Mag works with stories about the body, both the human and the sculptural. And she is interested in the history of sculpture, impossible amorphous forms, strict formal modernist morphology as well as proportions and geometric balance. Another part of her practice is devoted to an archive of the work process. In photographs, she presents pure fabrics of hollow bodies, a testimony from the time before the fabrics are filled with clay and wax. She is also concerned with social aspects of art, such as sculpture workshops and working with choreography and performance.

Born 1979 in Csikszereda, Romania
