“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven”  Paradise Lost, John Milton, 1667

AFTER EDEN celebrates the diversity and richness of the natural world and hints at its fate and potential decline at the hands of man. Mehta Bell Projects are pleased to present a carefully curated collection of artists that explore these concepts, investigating the complex relationship between man and nature and the potential consequences of the human pursuit for knowledge and power. AFTER EDEN uses the fall of man after his banishment from paradise, as a starting point for a broader discussion about the state of the world we live in today. 

Mehta Bell Projects encourage a dialogue on the potential hazards and misgivings of the world we live in, and investigate the consequences of our actions in these deeply troubled times.  On a voyage through the exuberance of nature and its infectious energy, these works also pose a valuable reminder of the temptations and risks that are ever present and ask that we be mindful that paradise can be lost.
