Annelies, Looking for Completion, 2018, android robot
Work commissioned by the Niet Normaal Foundation
What would it be like if you had the opportunity to copy yourself or your loved one? Would this prevent the fear of being abandoned? With the project Annelies, Looking for Completion, the artist duo L.A. Raeven examines these and other questions by creating an identical android robot sister. The Raeven twin sisters have become known for their penetrating and personal work on social themes such as the far-reaching individualization and the oppressive pursuit of perfection. The ‘cloned’ triplet sister Annelies also addresses these developments and focuses on the feeling of loneliness that often stems from this.
Work in progress.
