About Evita Vasiljeva
Evita Vasiljeva works primarily in sculpture and installation, creating objects by re-cycling and re-purposing materials used predominantly in construction work, as well as devices such as old, (un)functioning electronics, and other relics dug out from the urban landscape. Their meaning and role appear cryptic, and open to various interpretations. These rigid bodies both metaphorically and literally cement a stage for further interactions in-between themselves and visitors’ gaze. Vasiļjeva has graduated from the Fine Arts program at the Amsterdam Gerrit Rietveld Academy (in 2013) and was at the artist residency at De Ateliers in Amsterdam (2014-2016).
