Series: 'Borrowed feathers'
Title: Pa-Tro-Klos

'Borrowed feathers' is a duo-presentation of photos and sculpture.
The sculpture is made by Jos Letschert from corrugated cardboard, gluesticks, tulle, acryl-paint, gold leaf, strass, and other media. It represents icons of Greek mythological culture. Jos presents the sculpture in the way as it is, in this case: Patroklos, just killed by Hector's lance, with the unbelief about his defeat still in the open eye. The photo is made by Beate Letschert with a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, EF 85 mm f/1.2L II USM.


We try to express the added value of two artistic disciplines within a mutual series, taking into account that we strut in borrowed feathers. So if you are interested and like to follow our experiment, you have to take a look at both of our accounts.

Jos Letschert Wilma, de gouden glans van vergane glorie Wilma. ja, dat oog staart in het onledige. het waren natuurlijk allemaal tragische figuren, iconen ook, begrippen voorstellend als vriendschap, trouw, ontrouw, dapperheid, lafheid, eenzaamheid, aanhankelijkheid. Vanuit semiotisch oogpunt is de griekse mythologie een schatkamer.

Jos Letschert Thierry, interesting observation. Achilles and Patroclus were brothers in arms and cultivated a most deep friendship, as you know. In fact it is a main issue in the whole story of the Iliad. Homer never explicit mentioned a deeper relation or even a love affair. By Aeschylus, Aeschines and Plato however it tended into a home-sexual relation. In another sculpture I integrated the head of Achilles in the head of Patroclus. Maybe I can show it a next time on AL. Thanks for your comment and compliment.

Henk Aalberts avatar
Henk Aalberts vertwijfeling laat zich zelden zo helder zien als in dit oog, Jos, dit enorm expressieve gelaat vertelt het tragisch leven van Patroclus krachtig en zonder omwegen...zijn halve identiteit uitgedrukt in een half gezicht bedekkende strijdhelm (of haardos waar Achilles een lok heeft uitgenomen?)... uitermate krachtig beeld! En fotografisch bezien: mooi diagonaal perspectief, prachtig belicht in de zin dat de essentie van het beeld onderstreept wordt en de mooi afgetemde kleuren tot hun recht komen...

Paulo Abrantes avatar
Paulo Abrantes really like the option for black blackround in order for the face to be able to emerge from the dark. if I see scars and a sad look...? maybe..., or in other possibility, also some kind of relief - so, yes, the black background is a major subdued key point there. excellent
