With Auctus Animalis (2022), Vincent Fournier puts into perspective the metamorphoses of living beings and the evolution of species looks at the augmented animal. It is an initiatory fable on the metamorphosis of hybrid species, a poetic questioning on the transformation of the living. At the crossroads of speculative biology and surrealism, Vincent Fournier and Sébastien Gaxie’s project awarded the Swiss Life Award in 2022 is an astonishing futuristic bestiary combining history and anticipation, memory and science fiction. Auctus Animalis questions the new possible relations with nature in our world of tomorrow.
