L.A. Raeven

2018 - Android robot


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.

Annelies was commissioned by the Niet Normaal foundation for the Robot Love exhibition (made possible by the Mondriaanfonds) and is purchased by the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht.

This installation is made possible by the Mondriaan Fonds
