About The Installation: In reference to Greek antiquity and aesthetics, Prometheus Bound (2019-2021) depicts Prometheus -- Titan god of fire and sculptor of humanity -- in his punishment by Zeus as a result of stealing fire from the gods and releasing to humanity as a gift. A winged Hermes sits and points at Prometheus in his suffering, whilst a bald eagle picks at his ribcage. Serving as an allegory for the way that creative excellence is punished and exploited by capitalist interests, the work offers sharp critique of contemporary creative economies whilst glorifying the martyred heroes who bring fire to their communities.
