Julia Featherstone: Rebirth of Venus 2018

Rebirth of VenusJulia Featherstone, Rebirth of Venus, 2018, Photo collage on canvas
She’s the AI goddess who can see all the way to infinity
From my song: Atomic Goddess  (Julia Featherstone / Peter Head).
Rebirth of Venus (2018)transmutes Botticelli’s mythical painting of Venus (1486) into the Age of Cyborgs – a goddess emerges from the sea after her own birth as a fully-grown woman. In this photo collage, the Goddess of Fertility transcends herself to mirror the Virgin Mary’s immaculate conception with two babies in the womb, exclaiming: ‘I’d rather be a cyborg than a goddess!’
