“An experience is not, and never is, perceived in its entirety. It is essentially something that flows, and starting from the present moment we can swim after it, our gaze reflectively turned towards it, whilst the stretches we leave in our wake are lost to our perception. Only in the form of retention or in the form of retrospective remembrance have we any consciousness of what has immediately flowed past us.”

From ‘Ideas’, Edmund Husserl, 1931

Eva Vermandel’s practice explores how we perceive the world, drawing on phenomenology and its notion of epoché: the suspension of normality.

Her work is in the collections of the V&A, London; the National Portrait Gallery, London; and the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh. She published her first monograph ‘Splinter’ in 2013 with Hatje Cantz.

Concurrently with her artistic practice, Vermandel undertakes commissions as an editorial portrait photographer and has collaborated on long-term international projects, most notably with the Icelandic band Sigur Rós and the Sydney Festival. 

Eva lives and works in London, where she lectures in Photography at Middlesex University.
