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. However, as a deviation from his usual style of haute horlogerie and art photography, he had never found the platform to carry it out. Until, that is, he was asked to create something for the MB&F M.A.D. Gallery.
