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.
