I can say that for me Beauty is something that makes me dream, but it’s something much more intense than a dream. It’s an ideal, a mirage, an enigma.
Igor Mitoraj

Igor Mitoraj’s extraordinary artwork stemmed from his capacity of blending past and present without solution of continuity. It is not, however, a matter of looking back nostalgically on the past nor a simple philological work: the fragments of a past, bodies and faces depicted with typically Hellenic well-proportioned features are the starting point for a reflection on timeless issues such as love, sexual desire, femininity but also loneliness and suffering.
