Votives are things offered as a gift to a deity for healing or fulfillment of some wish. The use of votive objects remains a sacred gesture and a softened form of sacrifice.

Voltives are a transformed version of this ritual. Each sculpture is a kind of amulet capable of warding off future blackouts. Speculative sacredness finds a place in the combination of archaic forms and various elements of modern electrical networks.

The project was implemented thanks to the
Perpetuum Mobile (PM) program, within the Artists at Risk (AR) network in partnership with UNESCO and with the support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Teiger Foundation.
