In the milky way alone scientists assume there are some 40 billion earth like planets in the habitable zone of their stars. When we look at these numbers it is hard to imagine that there is nobody else out there.

“Felix Culpa” is a series of personal collages by Jagoda Valkov. In her works, the artist combines photographs from her family archive and albums belonging to other members of the Families of Nazareth Movement (within which Valkov was raised) with contemporary symbolic graphics. Here we have processed memories of adolescence and 13 years of life within a religious organization.
