Magnus Gjoen’s intricate, thought-provoking reinventions of classic masterpieces and relics will be making their way to Jealous East for a solo exhibition. A new print created in the Jealous studio will be showcased alongside other works by the artist under the exhibition title, 'Le Paradis Perdu'.

  1. Le Paradis Perdu, also known as Paradise Lost; is an infamous poem written by the 17th century English poet John Milton. It is considered by critics to be Milton's best work, and helped solidify his reputation as one of the greatest English poets of his time.

 

The French translation published in 1863; a 12 chapter book with 21 engravings bought at auction by Magnus Gjoen, is the basis of this new collection of works. The human heart symbolic of love and life is
juxtaposed on top of the original engravings to give them new life and meaning. The book tells the story of Adam and Eve and man’s first disobedience, which saw them expelled from paradise, along with the story of the angel Satan. The heart symbolises the first love between humans, but also mortality after the loss of Eden.
