Born in Bratislava, Slovakia, the photographer Evelyn Bencicova decided to pursue her interest in fashion- and art-photography a couple of years ago, following her urge to create images and stories of her own.
“For Evelyn Bencicova, the content of the picture is not just the person or the object that it depicts, but rather the thoughts or concepts the image evokes. Her images go beyond the apparent, without however being symbolic or representational: for her, a photograph is just a moment in a longer and multilayered creative process, since she sees herself more of a creator of scenes or sculptural compositions than ‘just’ a photographer, admitting that she is not really interested in the technical aspects of what she does.”
Through her treatment of the body as more of a sculptural or choreographic device, she creates poignant visual gestures which do not ‘stand for’ something, but rather bring actual relationships into existence – relationships between the individuals who pose for her, the body and its environment, the viewer and Bencicova herself.
With such a captivating aesthetic and deep conceptual background, Evelyn Bencicova is certainly a young artist to keep an eye on in the coming years. While she was unable to provide details regarding her (certainly exciting!) upcoming projects, you can stay informed about future exhibitions and new projects by liking her Facebook page.
