Apple Series

Concept behind the "Apple" Series

According to "Global Report on Abortion" released by the U.S.-based private organization Global Life Campaign(GLC) in 2017, the number of abortions worldwide over the past 100 years exceeds 1 billion. Mr. Thomas Jacobson of the organization calls this "the greatest genocide in history."
This series questions the pros and cons of abortion, a matter that remains controversial worldwide. The motif of the work is the apple, said to be the fruit of knowledge eaten by Adam and Eve in the Bible. First, a special tool is used to extract apples' cores, that is, the seeds. It then depicts these arranged in the manner of a common still life picture. While extremely commonplace, the tension created by the arrangement and its accompanying unnaturalness may speak to us of what the act of abortion is to mankind.
