Alix de Bretagne FRSA is a London based conceptual artist, human rights activist and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
In this readymade, de Bretagne contemplates the impact of PrEP in the fight against HIV. As we observe the
blue PrEP pill in a frame, De Bretagne invites us to see beyond the physical, to think about the implications of its existence.
Alix de Bretagne says: "It is not just a pill. It represents the unfulfilled hope of so many we have lost in the fight against HIV since the pandemic started; it represents the hope in the eyes of those left to carry on with the fight; it represents the hope in the veins of countless family and friends who have marched alongside our community; it represents the hope in the soul of all of us who are moved to action. It's not just a blue pill: it is hope."
