Éva Mag

Éva Mag was born 1979 in Miercurea-Ciuic, Transylvania. Since 1989 she has lived and worked in Stockholm, where she received her artistic education at the Royal Institute of Art. Mag works with narratives about the body, both the human and the sculptural, and in particular its amorphous forms. Her practice also includes an archive of the working process, and she is engaged with the social aspects of art, such as workshops, choreography, dance and performance. In 2019 she staged the performance “Dead Matter Moves” for Performa 19 in New York. Mag was featured in her largest solo exhibition to date, ‘Det finns en plan för det här’, at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, in the spring of 2020, a version of which was shown in Galleri Riis in Oslo that same year. In 2021, she presented ceramic sculptures in a pop-up exhibition with Galleri Riis at POMP Space in Stockholm and staged a new performance for “Disappearing Berlin”, produced by Schinkel Pavillion in Berlin. In March 2023, she staged her most recent performance, “Verksamhetsanalysen” at Lilith Performance Studio in Malmö.
