Elise Eeraerts is a multidisciplinary artist working with monumental, site-specific installations, concentrating on spatial interventions. In addition, she also creates works representing perceptions of reality through small objects, 2-D media and time-based media works. Her work deals with perception and questions what we see around us. She uses her own visual language, adapted to specific histories, situations, and contexts. Though often site-specific and relating to pre-existing architecture or landscape, the geometries that occur in her work aim to establish a contrast to the standard of objects and spaces, questioning their supposed function.

Often her work is meant to be a conduit for interrelating human construction and nature.  She explores material transformations that originate from the landscape, such as soil becoming a wall, or mud becoming a brick. The process of material manufacture in different time periods and cultures inspire her along with the social impact caused by their creation and context. When deploying and incorporating ancient practices in her work, she suggests a reflection about the nature of our own, current situation, society and lives. In essence, her work explores the past and future of tactile actions of creation and examines our gradual social alienation from ritualistic traditions, along with our idea of being in touch with nature.
