Making the Future with Art, isn’t it an Ideal?!

Artist, writer and futurologist, Raphaële Bidault-Waddington envisions art as a form of intelligence and a zone of experimentation that actively contributes to the transformation of the world (soft-power). It allows to take distance and raise questions prior to designing future hypotheses and projections.

The artwork and exhibitions shown on this website represent the area of her research and creation ecosystem visible in the art sphere, and in which veins of iterative exploration entangle and evolve at various rhythms (laboratory principle). They organize around formats and concepts such as the mental matter (meditative and preconscious drawings, abstract textile works), image architectures (photomontage, collage, installation, photographic performance in the public space, semiospace, datasphere, Republic of Images), knowledge aesthetics (diagram, performative installation, research-exhibition, theory-fiction, conference-performance) or else, speculation and the machination principle (idea engineering, fiction, laboratory strategies, scenario, imaginary complex, utopia).   

These exhibitions are complemented by numerous conferences, publications and other “labs” (special projects), developed via the platform LIID Future Lab (dedicated website under reconstruction) in collaboration with organizations in academic, urban and economic spheres in France and abroad.
