Winning bodies of work

The key pursuits of the movement are: raising funds for the construction of the embassy to return the aliens to Earth, cloning people and the provision of sex services. In 2002, the leader told the world that they managed to clone the first child, the girl named Eva. Unfortunately, her existence has not been proved. Working with a lot of material, I decided to interpret the experience in a visual narrative. I create and utilize sculpture, work with photogrammetry, 3D printing and video.

I am addressing social aspects such as human conformity, manipulation, pretence and sincerity. These concepts surround us and with varying intensity forming the cores of ideological movements, religious societies and cults. The driving force behind this project was the activity of a UFO-centered Raëlian movement. I’m taken by the ability of people faced with estrangement in modern society, to find some kind of transcendence in such cults. In this part of the project, the attention is focused on unsuccessful experiments, the process of creating a clone, fear, masturbation and sexual context. The series is a reinterpretation and my illustration of a world in which sexual emancipation and sci-fi interpretation of the Bible coexist. The created entourage is the decoration of an imaginary shelter that manipulatively attracts with its utopianism.
