Eva Ferndandez

Born in Toronto, Canada and living in Perth, Western Australia, Eva Ferndandez investigates her own pluralistic identity in relation to contemporary issues of global displacement and Spanish Diaspora in the 20th century. As the child of post Spanish Civil War migrants, Fernandez’ family, like many others, were displaced and left with a fragmented history. By carefully delving into the spaces of her past, she unearths narratives in order to evoke images which piece together a shattered, emotional and forgotten past. Drawing on these fragments, her works embodies the traces, voices and memories from the past that are blended and embedded with reference to Spanish art and history.
