During the year, students independently studied this work, collecting various material related to this topic, and also participated in a joint reading of the poem “Iliad”, where, together with teachers, they sorted out plots, discussed heroes and ideas of this literary work. Young artists stubbornly walked towards the realization of their ideas, Greek classical motifs are presented in their thesis with exceptional personal perception of the poem, with its understanding and falling in love with a great antique text.
The exhibition also included sketches, sketches, picturesque field studies, photos of the creative process, costumes, field details, hand-made by students and teachers to work on canvas. All these details will contribute to the deep immersion of the viewer in the creative process, in a kind of laboratory of the artist, like a look from behind the scenes, where the most interesting happens, where art is born.
The exposition will be accompanied by texts: art criticism annotation for each picture, an article about Homer and his work “Iliad”, quotes from the text of the poem.
The presented exhibition project “Dialogues with Homer” is an occasion to talk about ancient and current ideals, about a simple human life, about the war that takes this life away. The constant classic, proclaiming high ideals and shedding light on various social issues - what could be more relevant for modern times?
