Pandora's Snatch

Meredith Drum


Artwork description

Pandora’s Snatch is meant to be opened by the Prometheus statue in Rockefeller center, NYC. The project reframes the myth linking the two: When Prometheus gave fire to men on earth, Zeus was angry. In vengeance, Zeus created the first woman, and sent her with a jar full of trouble. But Pandora brought the cycles of life and death and the promise of a beginning wherever there is an end. Pandora is all-gifted, the first woman of earth and water, she-who-sends-up-gifts-and-vengeance.
