European Pantheon

The forms of objectified deities that founded and contributed to European culture. Collected from 37 European countries over a span of 25 years, some 180 varieties of these disproportionate gods line up. The present-day imprints of forgotten European gods are none other than everyday bits and pieces, and consumer idols. They existed even before the European political and economic federation, as it is often referred to; they were lying in the streets and nobody took notice of them. And they will exist as symbols even when the Union is long forgotten.

The meaning of pantheon: all of the gods, their temple. The Pantheon in Rome was erected as a residence for the gods, the Parisian Pantheon, too, was built as a church but later became a memorial to humans – philosophers, writers and politicians. The European Pantheon does not have a dome opening on the sky. And the gods are gods: everyday bits and pieces, used objects, junk... Our fallible things bearing the names of gods, memories, symbols. In the same way, humans are symbols in times of need.

And in the inter-reliant, narrow space-time the foreheads of humans and gods very nearly touch.
