Exhibition Details

The Skeptics - Relics of a Technological Goddess is an ongoing project that delves into the practices of a marginal community of amateur ufologists in Spain to explore the intersections between ufology, perception and UFO myth through a blend of film, photography and objects.

The work is based on the interaction among three main research axes: an event that marked the birth of the UFO myth in Tenerife; the ambiguity of photography; and the investigation of scientific laboratory instruments that attempt to capture the invisible, highlighting the peculiar and often strange nature of scientific ufology. Through a documentary, sociological and reflective approach to images, the exhibition is conceived as an immersive space to meditate on the obsolescence of beliefs, the end of utopias and post-truth.

About the Author

David De Beyter (France, 1985) uses an approach to photography that is both conceptual and documentary, often exploring the boundaries between reality and fiction. His research has solid foundations in the history of art and the nature of the image.

De Beyter graduated in photography from the ENSAV of La Cambre in Brussels in 2008 and specialised at Le Fresnoy in Tourcoing in 2010. His work has been exhibited at the Fotomuseum in Vienna, FOAM in Amsterdam, the Aperture Foundation in New York, the Musée L'Élysée in Lausanne, the Centre d'Art Image/Imatge in Pau, the Centre d'Art le BBB in Toulouse and the Centre Photographique de l'Ile de France.
