Paramythias II-V

 

The Paramythias series of works are digital prints on marble of various 1980’s and 1980’s logos from the automobile industry and its subculture, a material found in the display case of a car – and bike – shop on Paramythias street in Athens. The choice of specifically formed broken marble slabs as a base for imprinting these everyday symbols alludes to ancient epigraphic activity and at the same time stands as a comment on long-lasting characteristics of marble and its ability to culturally validate the content and the form of the work as an important finding.
