My work involves staging states of motion, flows and connections in organic, often thin-walled sculptures. One can view the sculptures as rhythmic self-portraits, elastic deformations or choreographed asymmetry! It’s exciting to present my work in an outdoor environment where it naturally connects with the viewers and the nature. The inner and outer spaces of the sculptures interact with the surroundings and speaks its own language. Eva Hild

Among is an enclosed connector and could be described as a pumping unit. A network of holes, conjunctions and inner rooms – as a state of mind.

In this sculpture the inner, closed part is turning outside and goes back again. A closed movement and a circumference where it grows, unfolds and implodes.

The screw-like organic shape describes flow and layers, freedom and growth. A contour runs through the whole sculpture and unifies it. Inside turns outside and the movement gives the sculpture its repetitive uniformity.

On one hand, it is the mass in thin layers, running in a meander-like movement. On the other hand it is the empty space, air and light shaping the volumes. The construction is made of what is absent.

The sculpture is a coherent and inquisitive creation. The tube like body has two endpoints, straining in different directions but staying together as a knot. It describes different opinions – confrontation and cooperation.

It is a reflection of my inner landscapes of form – a body of presence and absence. The plain and hollow expression takes the air into the cavities. Protrusions in both ways – influence, pressure, strain. My sculptures show me the necessity of opposites; they are paradoxes.
