Pisthetaerus (The Birds)
The artwork is inspired by the comedy play ‘The Birds’ by the Ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes. It is something that Dimitris wanted to compare with the pandemic that we lived the same situation as the myth of ‘The Birds’ of Aristophanes.
As a fable of humility, ‘The Birds’ condemns humanity's hubristic belief that we can control the world around us. Building on the theme of Man by Aristophanes, Pisthetaerus rejects the notion of humankind as the master of nature, instead suggesting that any belief in human superiority to nature is foolish and doomed.
