Kore is a contemporary artist. Her works are often dedicated to women and capture the different facets and complexity of the female universe. Kore is also known for her work as a photographer and illustrator, and in her work she propose a woman’s dilemma on the one hand naive, weak and in need of protection, on the other, strong, transgressive, ready to win every challenge. She, quoting Homer, claims to have been inspired by the Kore of mythology: youth, innocence, lightness. “I am the Flower Goddess, a season in the nature and life of every woman, then I am Persephone, the Terrible, Silent Lady of the Kingdom of the Dead,” she explains.
“I am Kore: youth, innocence, lightness. I am the Flower Goddess, a season in the nature and life of every woman. I knew the darkness of Hades, I tasted the pomegranate seeds thus rediscovering my name: Persephone, the Terrible, Silent Lady of the Kingdom. Only after crossing the threshold of darkness, crossing the world of shadows, I can go back to the light Holding the sacred pomegranate in my hands, symbol of the eternal return” (Homer).
