Examining the relationship between man and machine through video, sculpture, digital platforms and performances, Cécile B. Evans’s multidisciplinary approach feels inevitable in the age of the internet. Her work considers questions around subjectivity and mortality, focusing on the implications of our ability to exist immaterially in online spaces and the ease with which we flit between physical and virtual realms. What the Heart Wants, shown at the Berlin Biennale in 2016, is a futuristic film about an artificial intelligence whose algorithmically determined consciousness attempts to access emotion. Evans has had recent solo exhibitions at Castello di Rivoli, Turin, Tate Liverpool, mumok, Vienna and Kunsthal Aarhus, Denmark.
