Couillaud says, "In our ever shifting society, our references and our ways of communicating are in flux. Certain thinkers, following Roland Barthes, consider myths too archaic, too far from our reality. They suggest myths have lost their relevance to explain our contemporary world. For them, myths are just stories disconnected from our emotional and psychic life. So why would contemporary artists choose to represent scenes from Western mythology? What do we make of work that re-appropriates scenes from Greek and Roman mythology? Many artists, following psychoanalysts Carl Gustav Jung and James Hillman, suggest that what the gods of mythology represent is alive, and that we are not so different from the ancient people."
