According to Greek mythology, other gods ruled before the Olympic pantheon: the Titans. Euripides Laskaridis delves into this obscure time in human history to reveal ties with our fragile modern world. After the strange figure of Relic, he is back this time, with Dimitris Matsoukas, as primordial beings whose round tummies may be pregnant with child or perhaps ideas. The androgynous costumes deform and reshape their bodies, in an irreverent attempt to return to a world before the advent of reason.
