The exhibition You Are my Biggest Inspiration in the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is the first comprehensive solo show of the early work of the radical artist duo EVA & ADELE. In addition to their very first joint work, the video installation HELLAS, the publication shows for the first time early key works which focus attention on the Gesamtkunstwerk EVA & ADELE. EVA & ADELE come from the future. They started their joint work in 1989 with the 7-channel/video HELLAS, which symbolises the finding and fusing of the two solo artists to created an artistic identity. Since their 'Hochzeit Metropolis' in 1991 the couple strolls with the same costumes and theatrical appearance as a permanent, life-long and worldwide performance at the principal events of the art world such as the documenta in Kassel, the Biennale in Venice and the major art fairs. The books shows examples from their early painting, drawing, sculpture and video.
