Georgia Tucker's Advena (2020) presents a virtual eco resort, a tropical digital environment responding to the spectator’s desire to escape their monotonous life of apocalyptic chaos and to discover an ideal Instagramable landscape of idyllic fauna, colourful architecture and warm beaches.
The work explores the ecological and social impact of tourism and its corresponding resorts, often used as an escape from a technologically driven urban life and the lived reality of the environmental crisis. Simultaneously, the work questions the corporate renovation and marketing of land as luxury oases.
In Elisium (2020), Tucker showcases Advena's deserted pink sand beaches, set against its colossal geometrical architecture. Nestled in the colourful scene, you can peek a thin red path that criss-crosses the island amongst the leafy palms.
