“One could say the “Garden of Eden” is not only the questionable birthplace of humanity and original sin, but also the first “fake news” known to mankind. Is it fact or fiction?” – Curator Indira Cesarine, on her project “Eden”.


Katherine Crockett, who was the principal dancer of legendary dance company Martha Graham and “Queen” in “Queen of The Night”, will perform “EVE’S TEMPTATION” on Sunday, March 10th as part of a special performance programming presented by Indira Cesarine / The Untitled Space for the “EDEN” Exhibit at SPRING/BREAK ART SHOW. She will be transformed into EVE as part of the performance by notable bodypainting artist Trina Merry, and Andrew Grey will support her performance as the “Serpent” of Eden.

SPRING/BREAK Art Show opened on March 5th at The UN Plaza, unveiling the artworks of 85+ booths with the theme “fact and fiction.”  Special Project “Eden” curated by Indira Cesarine of The Untitled Space. presents a garden ripe with trees, fruit and visual art that investigates the history and symbolism of the Garden of Eden. Almost all of the artists featured have created new works specifically for the exhibition that directly address impact The Garden of Eden has had on culture in the past and present. SPRING/BREAK Art Show closes on March 11th, 2019.

The “EDEN” installation and exhibition presents conceptual works across all mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, collage, mixed media, and performance (taking place on March 10th) that explore the myth and beauty of Eden, as well as the roles of Adam and Eve, the concept of original sin, of sexual temptation, and the religious belief system that as a result of Eve’s actions, women for eternity must pay for her sins.

“One could say the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is the root of misogyny in patriarchal societies and has resulted in women being subjected to discrimination and “justified” inequality for thousands of years. Equally, the sexual liberation and beauty of the Garden of Eden have been romanticized throughout the canon of art history. I felt it was time to explore The Garden of Eden in context with feminist art today, including the stereotypes, symbolism, and sexuality of Eden, and liberate Eve from being a woman condemned.

I am also thrilled to have renowned dancer Katherine Crocket and celebrated bodypainting artist Trina Merry present a special live performance on March 10th.” –Indira Cesarine
