PARADISE GARDEN + SPA series
multi channel video installation

"The idea behind PARADISE GARDENS + SPA series is to research the meaning of a powerful metaphor. This metaphor exists on a very high level of abstraction and is deeply rooted in our culture. The second aspect i am interested in is the easy-to-sell contemporary item of service industry which you can find in resort and hotel offers regarding spa treatment and which is in fact a profan interpretation of the idea of the garden of Eden.

In Paradise Gardens + Spa the most challenging part was to get rid of the idea that paradise gardens always has to be a garden. I had to learn that i don ́t have to show a French park or English garden if i want to evoke the impression of garden of Eden."
