Artwork: Fafnir's Tatters
The art work calls Fafnir's Tatters , and it's a dismembered poisonous dragon.
Representing greed for wealth, Fafnir is the eldest son of the dwarf king Hreidmar and the trophy of the epic hero Sigurd. Because of his greed for the gnome Andvari's treasure, Fafnir was transformed into a poisonous dragon.
The artwork mimics a hero who, after defeating a poisonous dragon, hangs the dismembered dragon as his trophy.
The work is made with linen and fireproof materials. The simplicity of the linen on the front of the work collides with the technological sense of the fireproof material on the back. It gives a visual experience of classic and modern.
