About the project

Based on Ovid’s Metamorphoses, this series explores the transformation of the human form; the body is a mutable canvas, subject to the whims of the Gods. Myth is expositional- here Ovid suggests the vulnerability of the human condition in the face of time, illness and eventually death.

Noah as Galatea, sculpted from marble by Pygmalion- such is the power of his obsession with her that the sculptor animates the cold stone with his touch and she is brought to life.

Agostina as Tyresias- both Male and Female, the blind prophet had the gift of prophecy, sight being the classical paradigm for knowledge.

Benjamin as Narcissus- The beautiful youth who fell in love with his own reflection and eventually pined away, unable to break free from this infatuation. He was eventually transformed in his longing into the Narcissus flower.
