This Fanzine was conceived as an inclusive meeting place. The poems, texts and thoughts of several artists have been assembled in order to develop an emancipating plural expression. The underlying objective is to escape together from the daily social pressure.
Does religion offer a code of conduct to quickly transform our lives into an experience of freedom, true happiness and love? What should we believe in? Superstition is a catalogue based on the God & Sons exhibition at the Roman Museum in Lausanne, offering a tale that traces the path of a hopeful spiritual humanism.
Ici Loin is the exploration of an imaginary world through the eyes of a curious and wandering protagonist. The research that accompanies this graphic novel offers an experimental dimension to the project and seeks to give particular importance to the creative process.

According to the theory of the anthropologist Bruno Latour, our modern society is separated between the political and the scientific spheres. Science would represent the unpredictable state of things, while politics is composed of a mixture of ideologies and beliefs. This confusion between these two instances would make hybridisation unrepresentable. Through the representation of objects from our collective memory, this project proposes a system of images illustrating the association of this nature/culture paradox.
The superposition of these two objects, on the one hand cultural and on the other scientific, gives rise to the emergence of new discourses in order to allow the representation of hybrid objects. This project is printed in vegetable ink and chemical ink.
Based on the most common clichés in the media space, this interactive installation reflects the double reality that social networks sell us. The fake and artificial side of the "good life" is confronted with the real and depressing aspects of human nature, all depending on the movements of the viewer and his or her shot. Sometimes the images are intertwined to emphasise the interdependence and coexistence of these two worlds.
