The installation consisting of 2.5-metre long canvases depicting two figures: male and female, was identified by the artist with the first parents of mankind, the biblical Adam and Eve. The act of birth simulated by the performers, from crawling and crawling to cognitive symptoms, resembled animal behavior. It served the process of transforming a human being. Until the conscious act of becoming a rational being. The culminating biting of the umbilical cord – a symbol of separation, the individual became the beginning of giving a new identity.
