Eva Frapiccini’s works revolve largely around language and its invisible ways of expression. Directly informed by historic events, material significance, her subject matter deals with sociopolitical circumstances where power relations are unbalanced. Her projects have been shown in a series of international institutions such as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, United Kingdom; the Arkitekturmuseet, Stockholm; MAXXI Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome, and festivals such as the XII International Exhibition of Architecture in Venice. Frapiccini’s works are included in a number of institutional collections in Italy, such as the Sandretto Rebaudengo Foundation, MAXXI collections, Museum Castello di Rivoli, as well as private collections.
