Vivian Greven is known for translating motifs from sculptures – often with mythological themes – into delicate paintings. The artist takes a very similar approach in Leda I, which she produced for the exhibition. In contrast to María Magdalena Campos-Pons, Greven focuses her work on the reception history of the myth and the representation of the protagonists as individuals. How does Leda feel? How is Zeus in swan form? The brief moment of the encounter of the two – before the assault – is captured and examined by the artist on canvas.
