Persephone Dress Cotton fabrics, silk, plastic paints, plastic bags, newspaper, PVA glue, lifesize. Inspired by the myth of Persephone and Hades, this dress shows the in-between stage Persephone was in, in a more contemporary version of it. The book signifies the long hostory behond the myth and how Perspehone is more a figure out of a tale, rather than an actual female with a face. She is immortalised through what she did, not what she looked like.
