Trilogy of Terror is composed of three extremely time-consuming films, Panic, N and Omphalos, reinterpreting events from the Antique mythology, filmed in extremely sensitive geo-political locations.
“In Scoufaras’s trilogy, mythology and sexuality are used to explore the decline and fall
of ‘a current moment’. The Trilogy of Terror may leave one seemingly devoid of hope or
may represent another instance of externalization of hope—perpetuating the repetition
of the same mistakes.” ( Asya Yaghmurian)
Louis-Philippe Scoufaras (*1981 in Montreal, lives and works in Athens). Through sculpture, installation, film, writing, sound and performance, his work explores events drawn from mythology as an episteme to decrypt modernity, with an iconoclastic insistence.
