Hermes Stele 2008


Inspired by the ancient Greek “Hermes stelae” (square, cross section steles with erect phallus and bearded head of the god Hermes, which acted as a street signs). The head of Hermes is replaced by a rotating light box in the form of a cube, with a photograph of a different mail portrait on each face of it. Reference to human sexuality. The phallus could belong to anyone of the depicted males.
