Description

This idea begins from the film ''Le mépris'' where Godard colors a series of ancient greeks busts bringing them to life. I borrowed this theme in order to get a sense of how a foreigner perceives the idea of ''Hellenism'' and subsequently to intrude with my own modifications of this marble bust.

Thus I try to bring ''Efebos'' into a more contemporary context questioning matters such as: authenticity-morality-industrial process- immortality-death.

This project consists of 5 individual prints on paper of a specific marble bust ''Efebos''.

The prints have been modified with acrylic colours therefore the initial form changes.

The final result includes 5 different characters.
