The Machines at the heart of the exhibition are none other than the Japanese manga robots Grendizer and Astroboy, respectively known as ‘Goldorak’ and ‘Astro, le petit robot’ in French.’ For Geneva native Marc Ninghetto, creating a surreal series of photos based on these two childhood heroes of his was something that he had wanted to do for a long time.
