In exploring particular conditions of fiction that favour narrative and experiment with the alternate, they question binary distinctions between reality and fiction, original and copy, interior and exterior. Through the use of image, object and sound, the works reveal the ways in which translation and plurality are always present in communication.

Christians recognise the Gospel of St. Luke of the Annunciation as the starting point of salvation. Mary is described as ‘full of grace’ and thus greeted by the Archangel Gabriel; Without exception, she brings together all the graces and odoriferous virtues. As the rose is the most beautiful of flowers, Mary is the most beautiful of women: 'You are blessed among all women and the fruit of your womb, Jesus is blessed.'
