Eva Schlegel’s oeuvre includes photography, objects, and installations. Her photography often focuses on the aesthetic – though perhaps overlooked – allure of intimate, commonplace spaces – such as the interior of a book, found photography, and our built environment. By removing details in her images, often by capturing images out-of-focus or blurring the details later, Schlegel distills what is otherwise familiar and unremarkable into compositions of abstract beauty. Schlegel’s practice also extends into objects and installations that explore cosmic and human time and an imagined defiance of physical limitations of the body.
