Eloise Fornieles

Eloise Fornieles’ practice is predominantly performance- based, using video, photography and the spoken. Her investigation into personal human connections is framed within a broader overview of the relationship between body and environment, and the individual’s place within society. Fornieles’ work creates a space for contemplation, whilst her own emphasis on physical endurance provides a backdrop for a more visceral understanding of the body as material and its capabilities. Engaging with strands of mythology, ritual and storytelling, and often depicting animals, she teases out the symbolic resonances that hold meaning within our everyday social interactions.

Eloise Fornieles works and lives in London. After a BA in Fine Art at Kingston University, London, Fornieles graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2006 with an MFA in Fine Art Media. Selected exhibitions include Their Wonderlands, Midlands Art Centre, Birmingham; On and On, La Casa Encendida, Madrid; Natural Wonders: New Art from London, Babakov Art Projects, Moscow; Fashion in Film Festival, Tate Modern, London; Carrion, Haunch of Venison, Berlin; and Eternal Sea, Eternal Sky at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, supported by Art Production Fund. Fornieles was selected for ISCP in 2012 and for the Artsadmin Bursary award 2013.
