french-born new york-based artist eve bailey’s work is based on the concepts of balance and coordination.
her studio practice is rooted in the tradition of the artist engineer while extending to the disciplines of dance and acrobatics.
the body interests her as a perceiving mechanical structure. she uses her own body as a primary tool to create pieces that experiment with equilibrium through physical, mechanical, plastic and conceptual means. she conceives functional devices that do not serve a practical purpose. each project is developed through performances, drawings, maquettes, sculptures, photographs and videos.
