Ebb contributed two oil on wood pieces, Cephalotus Geminus and Cypripedium Lingua. They are are part of a series she is creating based on the eighth chapter of the novel À Rebours (known in English as Against Nature).

"There's no background, so you have to imagine that this piece is floating in a space made of wood," she explains.
