Saints for the future – An archive of impossible objects

As part of the Workshop “An Archive of Impossible Objects”, we explored the universe of Catholic saints to perform a fictional exercise around the saints of the future. What anxieties are there in contemporary society to which the new saints might respond? By collaborating with illustrator Juhee Hahm, we have created two saints whose aim is to respond to the anxieties of the present and the future.

The workshop was led by Dunne & Raby as part of a curatorial lab organized by Mariana Pestana for Porto Design Biennale.
