This photographic series is an investigation on the will to fix form in a direction that is opposite to the flow of time. It inevitably leads to changeability. I have chosen the most classical forms of representation, marble Greek and Roman sculptures that time has mutilated and deprived of the original shape. Only a fragment of physicality is offered to memory in a process of removal from history. Gods, events, names are now established in a purely human identity.
