Compelling narrative scenarios

Stacks Image 3142

Evelyn Bencicova is a visual creative specializing in photography and art direction. Informed by her background in fine art and new media studies (University for Applied Arts, Vienna), Bencicova’s practice combines academic research with an interest in contemporary culture to create a unique aesthetic space in which the conceptual meets the visual.

Evelyn’s work is never quite what first appears to be. Her photographs depict meticulously controlled compositions characterized by aesthetic sterility, tinged with poetic undertones of timeless desire and longing. Bencicova constructs compelling narrative scenarios that blur the lines between reality, memory, and imagination — “fictions based on truth”.

Employing multifaceted symbolic representations as illusions, Evelyn plays with the viewer’s perception to entice them into the secret labyrinth of her imagination. Her disturbingly beautiful visual language and washed-out colour palette, set within curiously symbolic environments, allow for a deep exploration of the themes that take her images far beyond what they reveal at first glance.
