Redeye and Openeye are very pleased to present an evening with Eva Stenram.
Eva Stenram is a London-based visual artist who sees photography as a medium of inconstancy and transformation. Incorporating digitally manipulated photographs, found photographs and images from the Internet, her work comments on our complex relationship with the photographic image, our relationship with surveillance culture and our relationship with privacy. Stenram seeks to unsettle the original functions of our society’s familiar photographic genres.
Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2003, Stenram has exhibited internationally, including shows at the V&A Museum (UK), Seoul Museum of Art (South Korea), Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum (India) and Zendai Museum of Modern Art (China). In 2012, Stenram was nominated for the Les Rencontres d’Arles Discovery Award.
She will have a solo exhibition at Open Eye Gallery as part of LOOK/13 Festival, opening in May 2013.
The doors open from 6.30pm with the talk starting at 7pm. There will be the chance to chat and network over a drink and catch up on the latest photographic news.
Tickets are £5, or FREE to Redeye members. Visit the Redeye website to purchase.
“[Stenram's work] is simple. But it is also very effective … They’re intelligent pieces full of sensible reminders that photography represents a big broad culture which easily encompasses everything from grubbiness to wit.” – Francis Hodgson

“Playful and provocative.” – Sean O’Hagan, The Observer
