Evelyn Bencicova (b. Bratislava, 1992) is a visual creative
specialising in photography and art direction. Informed
by her background in fine art and new media studies
(University for Applied Arts, Vienna), Evelyn’s practice
combines her interest in contemporary culture with
academic research to create a unique aesthetic space in
which the conceptual meets the visual.
Collaboration repertoire includes cultural institutions such as Frieze, Royal Opera House,
Berghain, Kunsthalle Basel, National Portrait Gallery London and MQ Vienna.
Evelyn's work was published in international art books and exhibited in galleries
and museums around the world. She also received numerous awards for
both photography and art-direction including Hasselblad Masters.
In 2019 Evelyn completed artistic residency in Mimic Studio
which shifted her practice into more immersive and experimental
forms of story-telling. Audio-visual work “Next time die consciously” (2018)
and “nine sum-sorcery” (2019) were premiered at main stage of Atonal Berlin,
MIRA (Barcelona) and Regenerations (Amsterdam). VR installation “Artificial Tears”
was exhibited at Berlin Photo Week in Kraftwerk and Synthesis Gallery and Slovak National Gallery.
The work has been nominated for Berlin Masters Foundation Award 2020.
