Le dépassement de Hercule

140 x 100 cm, 2023

Oil on canvas


"Le dépassement de Hercule" reinterprets the "Apotheosis of Hercules," blending myth with the queer narrative. Hercules emerges not just as a hero, but as a symbol of self-discovery and LGBTQ identity, linking ancient Greece's open narratives with today's ongoing journey for acceptance. This piece marks the beginning of a historical exploration through a queer lens.

Timeline: 800 BCE - "Iliad" and "Odyssey".
