Daphne (Becoming Tree)

By  L C Persson 2023
Persson works through different Greek mythologies, here Daphne (Becoming Tree) and Hekate, to ignite the female gaze, that display a completely different perspective from the historical stories of the same myths. With ceramic and glass segments, the objects grow into each other, becoming both body and tree. What makes Daphne to transform into a tree? It can be interpreted in several different ways. As a water nymph and a female figure, who did not want to engage in sex she had to escape Apollo's approaches and decide to transform herself into a tree. The story can be retold in contemporary society of male violence where female bodies are abused and bodies left to die.
