Gods and Monsters Michael Zavros
24 Jun – 2 Oct 2023
Gallery of Modern Art & Gallery 1.4
In collaboration with the Children’s Art Centre, Australian artist Michael Zavros is interested in exploring his Greek-Cypriot heritage through his work. A way in which he does this, is to bring a modern twist to stories from Greek mythology.
For this project, Michael invites children to learn about a selection of characters from Greek mythology through an animation inspired by ancient Greek pottery. Children can also create their own digital ‘hero’ identity by capturing a side profile silhouette of their face, and then choosing their character’s features, accessories and an animal motif.
