George Eksts worked on a project with Animate in 2015 which opened up the possibilities of using digital space. Working with with a choreographer and dancer to perform, record and then animate the human body, Eksts chose to place this figure within a digitally created ‘white cube’ gallery. As one of the selected artists for the 2018 Whitechapel Open, Eksts invited other artists in the exhibition to position their work in this digital gallery ‘set’.
