Love of The Eden (2017)


Floating amongst the Seychelles Republic in the southern Indian Ocean, one can find the Adam and Eve Island, named in reference to the Bible. The motif of this work is the iconic twin palm (coco de mer). This extremely rare giant palm tree native to Seychelles was born with a so-called forbidden fruit due to its appearance and was the source of various legends. A male tree bearing a stamen pollinates a female palm bearing a fruit evocative of a woman’s lower abdomen, under a full moon. It seems to take over 20 years to produce a fruit, but for a thousand-year old tree, it doesn’t seem like such a long time. Also, its fruit is twice-crowned by the Guinness world records in terms of size and volume.
