artistbook Temp Temps Mort/A la Folie for the exhibition < No maps for these territories, though they are of our own creation. No myths for these countries of the mind. > in Centre des Arts Enghien-les-Bains, Paris.

Alex Verhaest’s works are visual explorations and investigations of the nature and boundaries of language, communication and social conventions and the potential of contemporary storytelling. The basis of each project is a narrative script, existing or newly written, around which she creates a body of standalone works by analyzing its storyline and exploring the limits of what constitutes communicable language. Her highly pictorial work operates by the juxtaposition of painting, video and contemporary technology.
