Fabiola by Francis Alÿs
Fabiola is an installation of over 300 painted copies and reproductions of fourth century Saint-Fabiola, collected by Francis Alÿs from flea markets and antique shops throughout Europe and America in the last 20 years. They are all based on a now lost original painting by french artist Jean-Jacques Henner made in the nineteenth century.

Philipp Schumacher, 16-year-old photographer from Germany, is really talented. In the past two years, he took photos in the title role with him, which turned out to be an interesting series of surreal artworks.
