Alex Verhaest
Visual Arts Residency

Based between Amsterdam and Brussels, Alex Verhaest is a multimedia artist who uses contemporary technology to investigate the narrative space within art. Verhaest’s work is largely focused on language, story and the impossibility of communication. The basis of each project is a highly narrative script, existing or newly written, around which she creates a body of work by analyzing its storyline and exploring the limits of what constitutes communicable language. Verhaest’s highly pictorial work operates on the juxtaposition of painting and video, each new project being an investigation into unorthodox contemporary technology.
