Eva L'Hoest's practice uses digital language as an archaeologist's tool to address questions of origins and memories. Through combinations of sculptures, performances and audiovisual installations, she explores the way in which collective and individual mental images can be reactivated and reanimated in technological forms. Starting from reality and the situation of the body within it, Eva L'Hoest appropriates contemporary technologies in their capacity to record and expose the world by revealing new narratives and forms, inscribed in the limits and potentials of machines. Eva L'Hoest infiltrates the data of our digital age as much as primary mythologies and thus brings to the surface visual and audible forms that create new territories of relationships, at the crossroads of distinct worlds, times and media.
