DL Gallery of Piraeus and Mirko Mayer Gallery of Germany are proud to present a series of works that are the result of a collaboration between artists Micha Cattaui of Greek and Egyptian origins and Pasi Orrensalo of Finland.
Our journey on this planet is a relatively short one. Our consumption habits do leave a sad imprint of our path that is hopelessly visible in piles of waste found on scrap yards. For Pasi, those piles aren’t merely an incarnation of reckless consumption – they are traces of our life stories.
Today, almost every aspect of human activity from politics to science has changed and improved significantly. Contemporary and modern artists have repeatedly used sculptures from Greek antiquity as the starting point for their inspiration.
When you merge Pasi’s vision of reckless consumption with Micha’s perception of Greek Antiquity as seen today, you get a new body of work that tells a story about history while at the same time watching the future.
Scrap items, just like the message from Greek philosophers, have been used by people of all ages, races, and social classes, making no discriminations and leaving their undeniable, everlasting fingerprint on our society.
