Painting by Domnica Nasta To raise chickens for eggs. That is what logic requires. But nothing obeys logic in Domnica Radulescu\u2019s garden, this garden of Eden where a man and a woman start anew. However, they are not Eve and Adam, but Lili and Ben, not man and wife, but mother and son, because motherhood is a tighter bond, strong enough for such a heavy burden like recreating humankind, giving birth to a more reasonable organization that does not fight, does not let peers die from hunger, does not allow blood sheds. Strangely enough, in Domnica\u2019s Radulescu dystopic garden it\u2019s April, like our quarantine! The verdict \u201cApril is the cruelest month\u201d echoes the sorrow of a poet who longs for \u201cforgetful snows\u201d on his (waste) land, instead of spring renaissance with its creatures and sentiments breeding, mixing and stirring. The egg, a metaphor for life, beginning, renewal, but also the most visible side of maternity, of which the womb is only a synecdoche, solves the plot. The \u201cold world\u201d had succumbed to food wars, floods, draughts, and (again premonitorily), a \u201cplanetary illness that put a stop to just everything\u201d. Domnica Radulescu\u2019s love for all the languages in the world surfaces in the many names of an egg, together with colours, sizes and memories. Somehow this story seems to suggest that this couple\u2019s knowledge of many languages is precisely the skill that helps them repopulate the devastated planet.
