Product of paradise

site specific sculptures 2016

Today's supermarket is like the Garden of Eden. Food is plentiful and the products on the shelves look beautiful. The pictures on the packages all seem to represent a perfect world; People are smiling, the sun is shining and the grass is as green as it can be. They seduce us to buy and consume them. While packages at the same time cause big environmental problems that threatens all life on earth.
This observation was the starting point for the work Product of paradise. Bokma wanted to recreate a giant package of an existing, very popular brand en place it in a nice scenery that relates to the image of the package. Letting the visitors identify with the image they are so familiar with.
