“These pieces are meant to challenge our historical conception. My goal is to dust off these old statues and bring them into a modern world with a fresh, new look. I want to make people think about them in a way they never have before. I think that it will then be easier for people to establish a connection with the figures, not only as historical characters but also as pieces of art.”
