– In Recovery; (2013); Super 8; TRT: 2.55
Alex Hovet’s work in photography and video explores the relationship between image and memory, and the degradation of both. Her work investigates the impulse to create narratives from anonymous imagery and the struggle to recreate memories from family archives. Situated in a time of vast internet archives of orphaned imagery and user-generated “glitch” art, her work uses digital and manual manipulation, structural editing, and found imagery to probe the many physical processes of recovery.
Hovet was born in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and is a graduate of Bennington College, VT, where she was awarded the Hoffberger-Rosenberg Scholarship for outstanding student in the performing and visual arts, a student membership in the Playwright’s Center, and a grant to attend the Orphans 8 Film Symposium in New York City. She is currently a freelance visual artist and playwright.
