from Garden of Eden, reconsidered?

Being portrayed (collectively) by Don Kurka in a painting called Garden of Eden, reconsidered? is a strong experience. Especially when the portrait if front of yours is none less than… Jung’s. Kurka has made many things in his long artistic life – explorations of psychological conditions, of stark contrasts (put Ai Wei Wei next to Beckett in the same painting, for instance!), of darkness and humor (dark and witty and scatological and baudy and clever). This time, he put five of us in the same painting, with a fictional (really?) recreation of the story of the garden of Eden, many questions asked of the five characters (one of them himself), and especially of the Eve and the Adam of the garden.
