Eva Joy Lawrence, Se Despiertan (They Awaken)

Eva Joy Lawrence, Se Despiertan (They Awaken)

33 x 13 x 7 cm, 26 x 12 x 7 cm. Prints vary. Public intervention: bronze, photographs, 2019

Eva’s work explores climate-driven societal collapse and how these speculative, post-apocalyptic futures might force re-structures of the way humanity organises itself to be fairer and freer. She photographed her small but sinister bronze sculptures in 2019 to highlight the invisible threat of melting permafrost to release ancient bacteria within. Viruses are a global concern and Eva creates physical representations of these microscopic menaces, using recycled materials and street-junk. She captures the grit and absurdity of urban environments in her works, which sit between humour and horror. She is a multidisciplinary artivist, based in London. Eva graduated in Fine Art and Art History from Manchester School of Art and The University of Barcelona.
