In Rebeca's Words:
When life gives you apples ... run
Looking at various myths, legends and fairy tales, apple seems to be pretty unfortunate for a woman.
When an apple appears in a story, you know that something will go bad.
From Eve, thru Greek mythology to Snow White there was always a catch with an apple.
It is beautiful, delicious, tempting, seductive. A Perfect disguise for all bad that can come.
I use it as a symbol for the monstrosities that woman too often don't recognize as such in its early stages.
This installation is about domestic violence and eating disorders, on first sight two very different things, but violence against someone and violence against oneself are the same thing, a violence.
Installation starts at the bottom of an eaten apple from where path with teleports develops thru inside.
From ground level only apple is visible,rest is settled in the sky.
Every time visitor gets teleported he has to come back into an apple to continue the path. There are notecards and stories to be collected at each level
