About Eva La Cour

Eva la Cour is a Danish visual artist and researcher with a background in fine arts as well as visual anthropology. She works with audio-visual and spatial forms of montage and display, performance and text, always negotiating with her surroundings. As such her work reflects a general interest in skilled visions, mediation and epistemology, which she particularly has investigated in relation to landscapes of narratives and raw materials in High Arctic terrains.

At Valand Academy of Art Eva la Cour is a teacher and doctoral candidate with the practice-based artistic research project The Figure of the Guide: Mediating the Open Terrain.

More on the research project:

The figure of the guide: Mediating the Arctic terrain is an artistic research project attentive to the guide as a pathfinder and mentor that collapses distinct practices and temporalities of producing, presenting and living the geopolitical Arctic. The research is developed from experiences and records of fieldwork on Svalbard which, while often functioning as visually representative of the High Arctic, in many ways can be regarded as a regional anomaly as it never has had any indigenous population. In this sense, the research uses Svalbard as a prism and the guide as a (contested) figure to investigate and politicize material-discursive value practices in their skilled and situated dimensions, within the domains of both arts, science and commercial industries.
Using experimental film-strategies in which I assemble and voice my fieldwork material, often in front of a live audience, the aim of my research is thereby to contribute to an understanding of mediation as something significantly different from representation – and with a speculation on the political and aesthetical implications of such an understanding.
