THE NETHERLANDS, 1993

Esmay Groot Koerkamp links the ancient theme of the Garden of Eden to present-day events and personal experiences, to the maternal and paternal bond, and being led by what others want or expect from you. “The moment you take your first steps outside paradise, it seems like you have to relearn how to walk.” Outside paradise, the search goes on. The muscular frames of the depicted figures refer to unused or unrecognized strength. We are capable of so much more than we sometimes think, yet we still allow ourselves to be seduced into eating from the forbidden apple.
