In the intersection between art and design, Nikoline Liv Andersen exploits a lush and detailed textile interpretation of the garden of Eden in the middle of Nikolaj Kunsthal.
The exhibition is inspired by The Creation Myth and the Fall Myth. It deals with life and fertility, but also fear and perishability. And of course the female body – both as a sculptural motive and the fertility qualities of the female body. In Nikoline Liv Andersen’s interpretation of the Garden of Eden, human and nature is interwined in a symbiotic relation. Here, human nature is equal with plants and other animals – not rised above them. The masterpieces that consist of older and brand new pieces, is a combination of figurative and abstract motives, here amon knitting, weaving, patchwork, embroidery and tufting.
