EXPOSITION MYTHO EROTICS

Our subject :

We explore the relationship and non-relationship between two individuals. Our “attachment/belonging” to one another and our “attachment/belonging” to a historical and social context.

 

Free and trapped, hunting and hunted, important and obsolete, we explore the superficiality of sexual representation and the depth of myths, a figuration of our own private or universal mythology.

 

The result is a monumental 70 meter black and white fresco, expressed both lyrically and poetically as a fragile, perennial transcript of love.

 

Our artwork :

Instead of a traditional in situ fresco, we chose to produce our artwork as a limited edition wallpaper. We want to give our audience the opportunity to purchase any segment of this story, in the dimensions that they choose.

 

With your help, our wallpaper, the preparatory drawings and the original artworks will be exhibited at Boite Noire Gallery in Los Angeles will be unveiled on January 27, 2017 as a featured exhibition at the designLAb at the Pacific Design Center.

Who are we :

Theodore was born in Boston, USA, from Greek parents, both biologists.  He moved to Paris at an early age and grew-up between France, Greece and England.  He studied piano before attaining a law degree at Sorbonne University while concurrently studying sculpture at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris.

 

Despite virtuosity and critical acclaim in large ink drawings and wooden figures, Theodore continuously renews his work, evidencing the plurality of the Artist and the multifaceted layers and depth of his artistic expression manifesting through video art, installations, objects, street art, political and poetic posters.

 

Theodore also wrote the column Les Lettres d'Athènes in the cult French magazine L’Impossible/ L’Autre Journal
