Agata Konarska’s work Let’s Pray is an auteur essay, a visual trip drawing on the visual (and audial?) aesthetic of religious groups and sects. The Authoress freely combines conventions and symbols, creating something akin to a visual “distillateof sect/ religious group notions. 

Visions and conspiracy theories are contextually essential to the experience – as an impetus for activities of religious groups and communities, the essence of rites of passage, rites of initiation and mystic symbols. Konarska alludes to apocalyptic theories and visions, prospects of mankind’s extinction, New Age ideologies, fear of death, and notions of salvation by joining groups of believers.
