Clara Imbert and Evy Jokhova

Clara Imbert

Is a French artist, currently based in Lisbon, Portugal. She graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2017.

Her research reflects on notions of space and objects, perspective and perception resulting in

works of various forms such as photography, sculpture or installation.

Through experiments, Imbert investigates physical, mathematical and philosophical theories,

creating new patterns in order to unravel intangible points of views.

Her practice notably explores the relations between reality and illusion.

The matter is either created or transformed to manifest a multitude of possibilities; its position

indicates the passage of time, which also implies an imaginary dimension.

As space is deconstructed, an invisible geometry appears allowing its depths to be observed.

Evy Jokhova

Evy Jokhova is a British/Russian/Estonian artist currently based between Lisbon and Tallinn.

Working on a project-by-project basis Evy has several long-term such as: The Shape of Ritual which investigates the relationship between architecture, music, and body through employing various methods of inter-media translation and visual scores; and Allotment – a research platform that explores social relationships and cultural politics through food, collaboration, and participatory events. Evy’s most recent projects I dance for you my edifice and Within these lines, I operate investigate stone as a cultural historic constant, gender relations in architecture, body memory and the role of women in domestic architecture.

A graduate of MA Fine Art, Royal College of Art (2011) and MA Political Communications, Goldsmiths College (2013), Jokhova is the recipient of numerous awards including Arts Council England Grants, Royal Academy Schools Fellowship, Royal British Society of Sculptors Bursary Award, Wien Kultur Förderung & Amsterdam Fonds voor Kultur Grant.
