Eva Rocco Kenell holds a BFA from Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and a MFA from Konstfack University of Arts and Craft, Stockholm. Kenell’s artistic practice is based on a documentary ground, even though the intentions are rather to break down classical narratives and normative storytelling. Not only concepts surrounding fiction and reality are central, but also questions around which one of the two is creating the other. Her methodology consists of a research based practice with a focus on micro-histories, where she explore single events and where details in a story can become the new center and the place which the focus is transferred to. Her work brings up notions concerning the role of the documentary, storytelling, concept of truth and imitation.
