Eva Lootz

Eva Lootz was born in Vienna (Austria) and has been working in Spain since the late 1960s. Her work, which shows a strong interest in the interaction between matter and language, has been characterized from the beginning by the use of heterogeneous registers, aiming to expand the concept of art. It has evolved towards the creation of intersensory and immersive spaces or, in the author's terms, towards a "continuous art."

Among her latest exhibitions are The Song of the Earth (Tabacalera, Madrid 2016), Cut Through the Fog (C.G.A.C. Santiago de Compostela, 2016/17), Binomio, Arte y Ciencia (CNIO, Madrid 2017), and The Reverse of Monuments and the Agony of Languages (Museo Patio Herreriano and Museo Nacional de Escultura de Valladolid, 2020).

Her work can be found today in prestigious collections, both private and public, such as the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and the Malmö Museum of Contemporary Art. She has created permanent public space interventions such as NO-MA-DE-JA –DO on Cartuja Island for Expo 92, La mano de Lineo in Bohuslän (Sweden 1996), and Endless Flow (Silkeborg, Denmark 2002). As part of Expo 08, she constructed The Talking Ear, a piece located on the right bank of the Ebro River (Zaragoza 2008).

She received the National Award for Plastic Arts in 1994, the Tomás Francisco Prieto Award from the Real Casa de la Moneda Foundation in 2009, the MAV (Women in Visual Arts) Award in 2010, the Fundación Arte y Mecenazgo Award in 2013, the Barón de Forna Award from the RABASF in 2013, and the Award for Plastic Arts from the Community of Madrid in 2022.
