Eva Davidova at Collapse of Vision
Spanish artist Eva Davidova presents her work in this group exhibition curated by Jessica Porter in collaboration with Residency Unlimited.
Equity Gallery hosts Collapse of Vision, an exhibition that combines the perspectives of four artists whose work each uniquely addresses environmental, social and behavioral issues. Eva Davidova explores the transfer of cruelty from an individual decision to a facet in a complex network of decisions through performance, photo-based animation and computer generated 3D sculpture. Dakota Gearhart works to collapse hierarchical standards whether social, material or informational through video and multi-media installations and the use of abandoned materials. Ryan Kuocreates software simulations of family dynamics and uses video game tools to coax erotic performances from furniture, leaving us to question the anthropocentricity of user-based technology. Farideh Sakhaeifer, through the use of photographs, sketches and collage deconstructs the remnants of war and crisis to explore the collapse of the individual through despair and loss.

She received the 2008 M-tel Award for Contemporary Bulgarian Art and the 2009 Djerassi Honorary Fellowship.
