Irena Eden & Stijn Lernout have been working together as an artist couple since 2004. Their main topics are different types of migration and their cultural localization. Formally, Eden & Lernout have developed an abstract, geometric-constructivist formal language. The principle of superposition of layers runs through the picturesque, sculptural and installative levels of their artistic projects.

In 2007 Eden & Lernout moved from Berlin to Vienna where they have been living and working since then. In 2014 they have been awarded with prestigious Austrian Theodor-Körner-Fonds-Grant.


IRENA EDEN & STIJN LERNOUT - CV

They live and work in Vienna, Austria.
