Eva Davidova walks the line between real and the absurd while layering virtual and live action. The issues in her work—behavior, cruelty, ecological disaster and manipulation of information emerge as paradoxes rather than assumptions, in an almost fairy-tale fashion. From holography and 3D sculpture to animation and Virtual Reality performance, her materials mix and mutate into each other, creating uncertainties.
Her work has been exhibited at the Bronx Museum in New York City; Everson Museum, Syracuse; Albright Knox Museum, Buffalo; Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona, CAAC Sevilla; Instituto Cervantes, Sofia; and many others. She received the 2008 M-tel Award for Contemporary Bulgarian Art; the 2009 Djerassi Honorary Fellowship.
Recent projects include Birds Birth at the ASU Emerge Festival; Playground for Drowning Animals for The Body Prevails, Light Year 13; Transfer and Disappearance at the Media Center by IFP; Feeding Alice at the Holographic Center in LIC and Happenland at Radiator Gallery in NY, curated alongside Almudena Baeza. Her latest institutional solo exhibition was at the Contemporary Arts Center La Regenta.
