This work, based on the creation story, refers both to universal human desires and to notions of good and evil. Deller is intrigued by the tension between the two characters as they sway between love, envy and renunciation. The two figures covered in fig leaves become the frame for a swing. […] Everyone is invited to glide freely, carefree, under the presence of the forbidden fruit, which is as threatening as it is seductive.
This playful sculpture is an original creation, specially made for Paradise Kortrijk 2021, and will remain protected in the Messeyne Garden, a jewel of 19th century romanticism.

“A man in a suit, sitting on a table and holding his head in his hands, performs a song in German: this playlet imagined by the artist Ulla von Brandenburg seems close to a small street theater, like a fairground act from an ancient folklore background.”
