In her works “EVE: ‘Chair’ Of All Mothers,” “S-NAKED,” and “DIVINE DESIRE,” artist Mirta Kupferminc investigates the protagonist of Eve, and challenges us to decide for ourselves who is guilty and who is innocent in the Garden of Eden. Simultaneously fierce and subtle, her art invites us to sink our teeth into questions of the place of women, the struggle for power, and contemporary gender debate about masculinities and femininities. 


These works were created during the LABA Fellowship.

How do you remember first learning about Eve in the Garden of Eden? How does that juxtapose with Mirta Kupferminc’s interpretations? 

Ask yourself 

Can you detach Eve from sin, disobedience, or fault? What remains?  

Go deeper 

Do you believe humanity would have existed if the sin had not happened?
