Eva Larsson

b. 1964 in Borås, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden

Eva Larsson uses figurative sculptures to construct different scenes and narrative stories. It is a way to experiment and study the nuances of different phenomena. Subjects often revolve around themes of conformity, standards and social hierarchies versus liberation and courage.

Her work consists mainly of installations made of sculptures in raku-fired clay. The raku firing process gives the sculptures a surface with cracks and shades, which suits the expression that she try to reach. The challenge of the old Japanese raku technique attracts her. To give up control and accept chance and nature as collaborators in the act makes the process exciting.   
Larsson have an ambition is to create a reflective surface or a room for reflection, that activate the viewer’s thoughts and memories.
