Born in Brussels in 1992, Eva Claus is an audio-visual artist working primarily with 16mm film. Her practice is driven by observations of un/expected encounters with landscapes and people, natural habitats, space, psyche, circularity and means of film itself. Claus´s films exhibit a contemplative form of watching. In her recent films she uses an intuitive method of filmmaking in which she shares her interest in minimal narration.
Claus was educated at the Friedl Kubelka School for independent film in Vienna, Austria and she obtained her MFA in photography at the Royal Academy of Arts in Ghent. Her films have been shown at festivals such as Light Field San Francisco, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Moscow International Film Festival, Process Film Festival Riga, Harkat Festival Mumbai, Rencontre International Paris / Berlin, and Istanbul International Film Festival, amongst others. She won the Public film prize at the 22nd Dresdner Schmalfilmtage, Dresden, Germany in 2021. Parallel to her artistic practice she works as a film restoration assistant at The Temenos. Eva currently lives and works in Brussels.
