In this exhibition Eva explores the extraordinary relation between several extremes.
Painting and VR
2D and 4D
Old and new
Outside and inside
Eva communicates with her audience about how it feels to be a contemporary woman.
Dealing with common but clashing personas inside like the mother, the critic, the artist, the hedonist, the guru and the child, who seamlessly intertwine in her existence.
