Artist's description: Apolo and Daphne, inspired by Bernini's sculpture from 1626. It represents the moment the river's nymph is turned into a laurel tree because she couldn't take the god's advances any longer. With this piece I am making a commentary on consent. It's true that Apolo was under the influence of Cupid's arrow, but I am not going for any excuses. It doesn't really matter if he was truly in love, drunk on ambrosia or high on a poisoned arrow. After this, Apolo went back to being a sun god, and Daphne remained stuck as tree. The laurel crown homage is not enough to make up for an eternity-as-a-tree.
