Eden is a mythical place, a utopia lost, an idea of nature corrupted by human fallibility. The exhibition Dead Eden examines sex, death, and violence against the conception of the edenic state, questioning whether it ever existed or if, in fact, nature contains a worm corrupting it from inside. At a time of political instability, nascent fascism, and environmental degradation, Thanatos and Eros loom darkly.
