Eva Van Tongeren works as a curator and filmmaker. Her visual essays include “Er zijn geen walvissen in Frankrijk” or “Van ver staat het stil”. Through long-standing correspondences with her subjects, the artist explores the limits of personal boundaries. Often resulting in images of serenity, silent landscapes, interspersed with a melancholic voice-over. Her work discusses hope, commitment, social boundaries and a state of peace. The artist tries to grasp a problem that is not hers. leaving us to wonder How should one handle such delicate topics?
