Eva L’Hoest

Born 1991 in Liège (Belgium),
lives and works in Brussels (Belgium)

Eva L’Hoest’s videos transport us into environments which, though familiar, are inhabited by hybrid materials and hazy figures. The transient forms that she creates derive from reality, and then, through various technological tools, acquire a fluid texture and an unsettling autonomy. In her video installation, the characters move from screen to screen while memory fragments, captured by an MRI and artificial intelligence. Eva L’Hoest uses files taken from video games and neuroscientific experiments, coupled with images sourced from reality using 3D scanners. The artist also plays with the accidents of virtual images and with the flaws of algorithms to compose singular landscapes where the look of human and machine are mingled.
