about this work

This photographic print by world acclaimed Irish artist Eva Rothschild features an upside-down female gymnast balancing on one of Rothchild's signature black metal stands which, more usually, act as support for her sculptures.

about Eva Rothschild

°1971, Dublin (IR) – lives and works in London (UK)

Eva Rothschild’s sculptures are made from a range of materials including fabric, leather and wood, bringing together the hand-made and the industrially produced. The works often combine the forms and strategies of modernist art – squares, triangles, holes and repetition – with an array of visual associations and symbols, such as totemic columns of piled heads and draped snakes.

This exploration of the power and meaning of objects produces an encounter between the minimal and the magical. Leaning against walls, suspended in mid-air, or balancing impossibly, Rothschild’s sculptures have an ambiguous and powerful presence, exploring universally recognised forms and symbols.
