Eve Bailey
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: Eve Bailey has formed a practice based on the concepts of balance and coordination. She sees the body as a perceiving structure in constant movement and is profoundly interested in how physical awareness fosters creativity. Rooted in the tradition of the artist-engineer, her work lives at the intersection of sculpture, performance, dance, architecture, and design, addressing themes of motion. Her large sculptures include wide-ranging references—from ancient totems to contemporary ergonomic design—yet they always revert to biomorphic forms and structures, functioning as sites for choreographed performances in which the artist or other performers climb, contort and balance their bodies, activating the space. “Through my performances, I emphasize on the ideas of flexibility and lightness,” Bailey has said. “The structures I build serve to express the elegance of a gesture, a finite moment of equilibrium.” In recent projects, Bailey has collaborated with professional dancers in New York and Moscow and is now developing practicable sculptures for the public. Her current research explores association of her understanding of the body with cognitive science and neurology.
