An experimental project, started in 2011, based on the synthesis of the inner images and memories from the childhood, associated with Ancient Greek mythology and projected into the photographic space. The thematic base of the series is mythological stories, key personages – ancient gods. The “ready-made” works are characterized by the uncommon, as to the classical mythological plot, interpretation of the pictorial elements, their combination with nude bodies of gods and Greek heroes in the artistic space. The project involves social context as its name and sence are also about current frequently fake ideals of modern life and about the accent on material values.
