Eve Luckring makes art at the intersection of language, image, and sound.


For the past several years, she has been translating traditional Japanese poetic forms into the visual realm to negotiate the contested binaries of nature/culture, subject/object, and self/world. Her work questions the assumptions—and experiments with the boundaries—that define place, body, and habit.


Luckring’s videos and installations have been exhibited internationally in traditional art venues (RedCat and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Video Bardo, Buenos Aires; Lance Fung Gallery, New York; European Media Arts Festival, Osnabrück; Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley, CA, Surrey Art Gallery, Vancouver; WRO Media Art Biennale, Wroclaw, Botkyrka Konsthall, Stockholm; Chapter Theatre, Cardiff) as well as in public spaces (Los Angeles, CA; Ekaterinburg, Russia; Sante Fe, New Mexico; Shanghai, China). Site-specific projects have addressed the social mechanisms at play in places such as porn shops, institutional community rooms, elevators, public parks, and nightclubs.


Luckring’s poetry has been published in numerous journals and anthologies, including Haiku in English: The First Hundred Years, W. W. Norton & Company (2013) and The Disjunctive Dragonfly, A New Approach to English-Language Haiku, Red Moon Press (2013).


Luckring received a B.A. as a Dean's Scholar in Liberal Studies at the University of Delaware, and a M.F.A. from UCLA. She is based in Los Angeles.
