Text:
Sylke van der Heiden uses film, set and costume to reinterpret biblical and mythological stories from a female perspective. Her womb was a beautiful garden explores the relationship between the Serpent and Eve.

'No longer it was Goddess and God, but Goddess and Serpent. And the Goddesses womb was a garden of paradise in which the Serpent lived.'
