Eva Schlegel

May 5 – June 26, 2005

Eva Schlegel’s work includes photographs, objects, and installations concerned with the interaction of objects and perception, especially with the contradictions und ruptures that frequently occur in this relationship. In many of her works, meaning is constructed by consciously mobilizing the potential of associations and fathoming its depth. Her engagement with concealing and revealing, disclosure and discovery investigates structures of desire and legibility immanent to the image. For her exhibition at the Secession Eva Schlegel developed a site-specific installation that takes up the parameters of the architecture in order to reinterpret them.


Eva Schlegel, born  in Hall / Tyrol in 1960, lives and works in Vienna.
