Two robots, a robot dog, a fountain and screens with performers play the leading role in Sprung a Leak – the latest work by Cécile B. Evans (°1983, Belgium-U.S.A.). The conversations between the robots and the performers are reactions to information leaks and breaches in a computer system. In this way, Evans exposes emotions and vulnerabilities in a rapidly changing digital world.
Cécile B. Evans (1983, Belgium-USA) lives and works in London. Recent selected solo exhibitions include Galerie Emanuel Layr, Vienna (AT), Tate Liverpool (UK), Kunsthalle Aarhus (DK), Kunsthalle Winterthur (CH) and De Hallen Haarlem (NL). Her work was included among others in the 9th Berlin Biennale (DE), the 20th Sydney Biennale (AUS) and the Moscow Biennal of Young Art (RU). She also created AGNES, a digital commission from the Serpentine Galleries in London (2014). Evans’ work is represented by Galerie Emanuel Layr in Vienna.
