The Never Never 2022-3


“Did you know - there are more Porsches in Athens than anywhere else in Europe?”
(from a phone conversation with my father)

The Never Never explores contemporary myths: fake news, luxury branding and national  stereotypes. It examines how right-wing media used ownership of Porsches to make false  allegations about the Greek government debt crisis. In this work, a fibreglass Porsche is worn as a costume by Athenian performers. Like hybrids from ancient mythology, these farcical creatures emerge from the sea and navigate a series of epic landscapes before arriving at a photo studio.  All this is documented by a commercial crew, who in turn become actors in the performance.
