Heroes (Surface of a Revolution)
© Greg Demarque
A creation focused on the theme of body representations in their relationship with power, questioning the body as a means of influence publicized in the media through the image of itself. “Is it the power that creates the image? How does one’s body become a symbol of power?”, these are some of the questions addressed in Heroes.
