Bio

Eva Pisana comes from a family of artists and her artistic forms of expression are an essential part of her life. The forms of her cultural reflection and work have always been very versatile, an exiting path in the course of which her artistic field of vision widened more and more as she brought together various art forms as music, theatre, and sculpture. As a young woman she lived in Berlin and focused on her musical career as a mezzosoprano, while being a choir member of “Die Komische Oper” Berlin. After moving to Switzerland she began to study theater pedagogy.
Her goal was not just to stage a play, but to work with her students to create an organic whole. Consisting of music, movement, stage design and costumes, developed together in the course of rehearsals. The last of a whole series of theater productions was Mozart's Magic Flute in 2017.
After this production, she felt the need to shift her artistic focus away from theater and into the visual arts. She began creating sculptures - and kept at it. In this type of art, she processes the themes that characterize our human existence: the fragility and the beauty of life, and the dangers and risks that lie beneath the surface. Her favorite materials to work with are clay and bronze.
She gives the clay different surfaces to make it look like metal or she treats the surface with colored wax. With her artistic skills and materials, she gets to the bottom of questions about our „conditio humana“. Are surfaces deceptive, what grows in secret, does it nourish our life, or does it have the power to undermine and destroy it? (As in her work: Fragilità). Eva Pisana puts all her energy into these topics. Her latest achievements were the 1st place of an art competition at Kreuzlingen-Switzerland, together with a colleague. And with her last exhibition she was represented at the Paris Art fair. But because she still likes to pass on her knowledge, Eva Pisa-na teaches sculpting at the „Kunstschule Konstanz".
