Known for his dark humor and absurdist video performances, Polish artist Oskar Dawicki takes on the biblical story of Adam and Eve and the famous fall of humanity.

In Dawicki's recreation, every fruit on the mythical tree is consumed in a performance that veers between the graceful and the grotesque. (5 mins., video)
