Galleri Riis

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. 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 in the spring of 2020, and parts from this expansive exhibition was shown at Galleri Riis in Oslo in the fall the same year.
In september 2021 she will stage a new performance in Berlin for Disappearing Berlin, a performance and audio program produced by Schinkel Pavillion.
