Paganism (from Latin paganus, meaning "country dweller", "rustic") is a blanket term, typically used to refer to religious traditions which are polytheistic or indigenous. It is primarily used in a historical context, referring to Greco-Roman polytheism as well as the polytheistic traditions of Europe and North Africa before Christianization. [Wikipedia]

This installation, shown on the main facade of the Museum of archaeology of Toulouse, south of France, was inspired by a scultpure of a bacchanalian head from the 3rd century (see picture below). This sculpture had been found at the end of the 17th century and exhibited as an example of an antique pagan idol since then.

Using the idea of polymorphism that is a feature of the ancient gods, the head becomes almost invisible when integrated to the structure made of an abstract network of straight lines. The light will reveal several patterns, from abstract constellations to enigmatic symbols that will affect the rest of the building.

This work is a new collaboration with the musician Squeaky lobster.

Thanks to Jardins Synthétiques festial, MSR museum of antiquities, Toulouse.
