3298 The Seven Sins, 2014

Centraal Museum Utrecht

In the exhibition The Seven Sins, Studio Makkink & Bey takes the famous painting by Hieronymus Bosch, bearing the same name, as a starting point and makes connections between art, design and everyday objects from the past and present. In seven scenes, mostly interiors, Bosch depicts what behavior these sins lead to and how they are reflected in the the sinners' surroundings. In Studio Makkink & Bey's view inner motives of people can be read from their surroundings and interior. In this respect vices lead to activity and creativity rather than virtuousness.
