Revolt of the Giants - reconstructed from reproductions

 
 

162,5 x 125 cm, index poster, edition: 10, 2009


Numerous images of Pergamon’s Gigantomachia frieze circulate in academic books and guides that have been published throughout the years. Appropriating these existing reproductions which were printed in different epochs and different periods, with their diverse grids, qualities and illumination, we reconstructed the entire sculptural battlefield, and filmed this collage. The index poster lists the sources of the images we borrowed, and describes the publications in which we found them, and their formal qualities, such as contrast, printing technique and texture.
