WORK / > Gallery of the Thieves

The Gallery of the Thieves is currently being formed and altered while exhibited at the Asheville Museum of Art. The work attempts to challenge the Eurocentric narrative of classical antiquity through the reconsideration of the historical display. To do so, I use iconography from Greek and Roman antiquity, which I slowly cover by images from the Indus Valley, Mesopotamia, and the broader Levant – who, through ideas, imagery, or material process, shaped the cultural landscape of antiquity.
