Mnemosyne was the mother of the nine muses in Greek Mythology– this work depicts the abstractions of the characters involved in the mythological history of their births. The approach for this project was to contrast the ancient symbolism with a contemporary visual language by intercutting symbolism and stories with modern representations. For example the flashing sword becomes a lens-flaring laser in the film.

Thymann was commissioned by Museum Centro Arti Visive Pescheria, Italy, as part of a group exhibition with Jesper Just, Richard Kern, Steven Klein, Biorn Melhus, Candice Breitz and more.
