Eva Stenram

Eva Stenram’s practice extensively employs image manipulation in order to explore photography as an evolving and transformative medium. In addition to creating her own photographs, Stenram often also utilises and incorporates found imagery. The original functions of familiar photographic genres are unsettled. Stenram’s recent projects have explored our contemporary relationship to technology, human habitation and the landscape. Her subjects have included pornography, CCTV, travel photography, NASA images, and the family album. Photography’s imaginary and fictional status is emphasized.

Recent exhibitions include; Something That I’ll Never Really See – Contemporary Photography from the V&A, touring in India at the Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Mumbai, National Gallery of Art in Bangalore, and National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi, 2010-2011; Songs of the Swamp at WUK Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna, Austria, 2011; This Must Be The Place at Jerwood Space in London, 2010; Reading Landscape: Contemporary Landscape Photography at the Architectural Association in London, 2010; The Skinned City at Yinka Shonibare’s Guest Projects in London, 2010; Rank: Picturing the Social Order 1516-2009, touring at Leeds Art Gallery, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art in Sunderland and Grundy Art Gallery in Blackpool, 2009;  Singapore International Photography Festival 2008; European Attitude at Zendai Museum of Modern Art in Shanghai, 2008 and the solo exhibition Per Pulverem Ad Astra at Pavilion in Leeds in 2008.
