Londonomachy (2018)

Londonomachy digital graphic work was included to the Modern Classicisms project that ran in the framework of The Classical Now! exhibition at the Bush House, King´s College London, between 2 March and 28 April in collaboration with the Musée d’Art Classique de Mougins .

The Classical Now! paired the work of modern and contemporary artists with classical Greek and Roman antiquities, tracing the ways in which Graeco-Roman art has captured and permeated the modern imagination. It included works of the twentieth-century artists such as Pablo Picasso and Yves Klein, and leading contemporary artists including Damien Hirst, Alex Israel, Louise Lawler, Grayson Perry, and Rachel Whiteread.

Modern Classicisms project sought to develop the idea of contemporary responses to the Classical art in the artistic works. The artists reflected on how the stories of classical mythology had shaped our modern self-understanding; how classical statues had moulded ideas about what our bodies are or should be; likewise, how the classical past had been exploited for various ideological ends.
