This composition of paintings and installation objects draws its inspiration from the original myth of the Phoenician princess Europa, sister of Phoenix, who was abducted to Crete from Lebanon´s shores by Zeus, who, in the shape of a bull, took her through the open sea. Revisiting the timeless dynamics of the relations between orient and occident allowed for the unfolding of our common humanity. A loofah-dress serves as texture for the inner psychological and mental structure as “externalized skin” and the materials used for these themes like salt, henna, wax, sand and horn relate to the presence of their history still with us today. This approach refers to Gaston Bachelard´s idea of cultural evolution as the reinterpretation of myths.
