Elena Aitzkoa

Elena Aitzkoa works with sculpture, poetry, video, and performance. Everyday objects such as clothing and porcelain are joined together with stone, gypsum, and plants to make tightly entangled forms. Her artwork interweaves material from her studio with material from its surroundings into commingled configurations. Everyday things are made visible as poetry, and poetry becomes a way of navigating through everyday life. Body, mind, words, and objects exchange places or are subsumed into one another. 
 
Elena Aitzkoa (b.1984 in Apodaka, Spain) lives and works in Bilbao. Her recent exhibitions and projects include Zarza Corazón exhibition at Museo Patio Herrariano in Valladolid (2019), the record Paraíso Terrenal (2019) and the performance cycle Headscarfs Close to the Ground part of OsloPilot (2016).

Elena Aitzkoa's works are presented at Göteborgs Konsthall.
