Eva Koch


1985-92 Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, Denmark.
1989-90 University of Barcelona, Dep. Fine Arts. Spain.

Artist Eva Koch works spatially in the fields of video installation, sound and sculpture.
Eva Koch’s sculptures relate in scale to man’s own physical presence, most notably in her Earth Sculpture near the city of Esbjerg, created out of 800,000 cubic meters of earth, a clear landmark in the West Jutland landscape.
A recurrent theme in Eva Koch’s video works is the anonymous individual seen from a collective viewpoint. In her large-scale interactive video work VILLAR the viewer is given insight into a family whose lives have been affected by war. The work is a multi-faceted narrative showing us that truth has many aspects and that our memories are subjective.
Eva Koch’s art is often place-specific and interactive. Her works particularly revolve around the themes of communication and the shared features of human experience. Presented in a sensuous simple language in which image and word merge in extension of one another.
