Eric van Hove is a nomadic artist whose work is committed to creating links between local and global issues.

'V12 Laraki' is a replica of the Mercedes-Benz V12 engine used by Abdeslam Laraki in the 'Laraki Fulgara', Morocco's first ever high-performance, luxury sports car.

Each of its 465 components were handcrafted in 53 traditional materials, including ceramic, bone, tin, goatskin, and terracotta, by 57 Moroccan artisans.

In his first London solo exhibition, Van Hove breaks down and focuses on sections of the engine, allowing the viewer to fully appreciate the impact of each individual in making the work.
