Elodie Hiryczuk (Born in 1977, Avignon, France)


In her photographic works and installations Elodie Hiryczuk investigates the role of photography in shaping our perception of the world. She is particularly interested in our visual experience of space in relation to architecture and nature. Since 2001 she has been collaborating with artist Sjoerd van Oevelen under the name Hiryczuk/ Van Oevelen. Their practice can be seen as a series of experiments proposing visual alternatives to the conventional depiction of space. By using different modes of representation such as perspectival drawing systems and optical illusions, they create photographs which perturb mental clichés at both conceptual and formal levels.

Hiryczuk attended the Sandberg Institute and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie of Arts & Design in Amsterdam. Her work was exhibited at, amongst others, Museum de Paviljoens in Almere, DordtYart in Dordrecht, Contemporary Istanbul (Turkey), gallery Andriesse - Eyck in Amsterdam, and Skaftfell Centre for Visual Arts/ Bokasafn in Seydisfjördur (Iceland). In 2005 Hiryczuk and Van Oevelen received a Red Dot Award and in 2007 they were nominated for the 13th Van Bommel Van Dam Prize. Elodie Hiryczuk lives and work in Amsterdam.
