Eric Van Hove

Man is composed of an infinite number of words,
word, of a finite number of lines,
line, of an infinite number of points,
plane, of an infinite number of lines,
space, of an infinite number of planes,
hyperspace, of an infinite number of spaces

Inspired by a deep sense of wanderlust and the experience of foreignness, Van Hove questions the limits, “moral competence” and modes of persuasion of western contemporary art, once brought to the “audiences of the border.” If he defines his work as “poetic” and “tempted”, it has recently been advanced by some that while pondering on Globalisation it inscribes in the current of Fantastic Art. Prolific artist, he reflects on materialism and nomadism, whereas his insubstantial and subtle interventions often question in a discursive way sociological, political and ecological issues. Having made displacement his studio, he is in perpetual movement ; residencies in 2006 include Kolin Ryynänen (Karelia/Finland), MIDBAR (Mitzpe Ramon/Israel), Paradise Art Center (Tehran/Iran), Sharjah Art Museum (United Arab Emirates), Lijiang Studio (Yunnan/China), while that same year he lectured in ten countries including the West Bank.
