Valentine Bo, from the Your next step would be to do the Transmission series, 2019–2021
The series is dedicated to the Raelians, a religious sect that believes aliens from outer space created human life through cloning. Using plaster casts of human faces swimming in a formaldehyde-like substance or propped on a metallic cloche under operating theatre lights, Bo intentionally uses symbols and irrationality to create a deeper psychological visual story.
