Two people are clinging to each other. A man and a woman. They are standing naked in a forest. Around them trees grow into the sky. Do they dare let go? Adam and Eve – the loss of innocence – is about our human longing for eternity and about forbidden desire. The two figures are among the oldest motifs in the history of art. Adam and Eve are also abundantly represented in the permanent collection at Brandts. The exhibition presents works from the collection and recounts the myth of the first people as interpreted in pictorial and photographic art through the past 250 years.
