Born in 1983 in Les Lilas, France. Lives and works in Paris, France.
In collaged works that blur the boundaries between painting, photography, and screenprinting, Eva Nielsen explores the possibilities in these mediums to create renewed perspectives of reality. Nielsen’s works conjure utopian and atemporal landscapes from a mix of photographs, personal memories, and dreamlike idylls. Nielsen overlays these landscapes with industrial structures, particularly components of underground waste and water systems, that frame and mediate the underlying images. Psychically situating her works at various crossroads where subterranean and open-air vistas, imagined and existing spaces, and urban and rural ecosystems meet, Nielsen seeks out intermediary realms where new ways of seeing and experiencing have the opportunity to emerge.
