The Ideoplastic Materializations of Eva C

The Ideoplastic Materializations of Eva C

1st Jul 2009

This is an unusual art installation and probably best experienced in the flesh but the idea behind it is really intriguing. The Ideoplastic Materializations of Eva C is a work by Algerian artist Zoe Beloff comprising a series of drawings, photographs and audio:

The viewer enters a darkened room to discover life size stereoscopic figures that appear to inhabit our own three dimensional space. These phantoms reenact a series of ten seances held in Algeria and Paris from 1904 to 1912 with the French medium Eva C.

The installation runs until October as part of the 2009 Athens Biennale.
