Is it still possible to talk about a hero nowadays?
If so, then in what way?
Ehdenya project is born in Beirut where Cristina Ghinassi and Walid Abdelnour meet and start to collaborate together. Afterwards, on the Mediterranean Island where the Homeric heros’ actions took place, they wander between natural landscapes and wastelands trying to uncover a contemporary and personal definition of the hero today: underneath the mask and myth hides an out-of-focus and troubled character. A restless being looking for itself neither protected by deities nor destined to any epic actions. It is instead doomed to reveal its most intimate and frail facets.
Through her own gaze, Futura Tittaferrante will also be capturing their trials and experiments, with photos that are reflexive on the work and that will add another layer to the timeline over which it evolves.
