'‘Odyssey’ black Biro drawing on found Lomonosov Foal Figurine

‘Odyssey’ dreams of his journey through life – layers of images inspired from ‘The Red and the White’, Miklós Jancsó 1967, ‘White Mane’, Albert Lamorisse 1953 and ‘Les Sang des Bêtes’, Georges Franju 1949 are drawn over his body. Hope for a bright future is represented by the innocent form of the foal figurine. The drawings trace Odyssey's progress through life: a playful colt ridden bareback by a young boy, a cavalry horse of the revolutionary Red Army, to his journeys end at an abattoir. This piece depicts the fate of many war-horses, often cruelly treated and asks whether this is fitting treatment for an innocent being, unable to consent that has given its life to war service for humans.
