This mythological story about the kidnapping of Europe is a story about beauty, naiveté, desire, omnipotence and values, which are over time replaced by fear, paranoia, decay and chaos under the influence of many circumstances. It is equally a story about contrasts and the phenomenon of withdrawal into one’s inner world, which contrasts with the world of nomads, migrants or wayfarers. The clash of these distinct worlds becomes a foreshadowing of slavery, war, death and the spilling of blood. Contemporary Europe is literally becoming a fulfilment and a physical representation of ancient Greek mythology. The kidnapping of Europe is stripped of its figurativeness and brought into the reality. And man is always the one behind it. Or is it so?
