Part of REMOH

REMOH is a project stemming from a lifelong interest in Ancient Greek mythology. Using the often overlooked female characters from these stories, new interpretations are put forward, pondering modern female identity, relationships and sexuality.

The Naiads were water nymphs, said to have healing properties. Like all nymphs they were constantly objectified by men for their bodies, but if you pissed them off then they could drive you mad. I know who my eyes are on -_-
