This poster was created for the “Poster of Troy 2018” 20th anniversary commemorative poster exhibition after Troy Ruins was selected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site; this exhibition was organized from Governorship of Canakkale in Canakkale, Turkey, from 26th November to 6th December 2018. “In the middle of the year I was invited by Didem Çatal to participate in the exhibition and I feel romance that the “Trojan Horse”, which was thought to be the story of the mythical world, is a real historical fact. So we created a visual that included various images with the motif of a horse from a Trojan horse” says Chikako.
