SLOTH – SEVEN DEADLY SINS
EINAR & JAMEX DE LA TORRE
With Mexican roots and current residency in San Diego near the border between USA and Mexico the two acclaimed Mexican artists, Jamex and Einar de la Torre are well aware of the cliché of “the lazy Mexican” – Pancho asleep under the cactus. But paradoxically Mexicans are handling practically all manual and physically demanding work in the Southern part of USA.
A fresh view on Sloth from a Mexican and a global viewpoint thus opens a number of new opportunities for rethinking the historical deadly sin in today’s society. In the exhibition Jamex and Einar de la Torres present a new installation, which comments on the subject in a characteristic baroque style using a variety of elements; blown glass, resin castings and lenticular prints.
During the exhibition period the subject will be discussed and broadened through a number of events.
Seven deadly sins – seven art museums
Pride, Greed, Wrath, Lust, Gluttony, Envy and Sloth these are the seven deadly sins described and classified in early Christian times. In 2017 Danish and international contemporary Artists and seven art museums are invited to rethink the seven deadly sins and society today. The end result will be seven large-scale exhibitions and a series of events. Even though the project is inspired by the catholic concept of the seven deadly sins the project is not based on religion or in any ways related to religious thinking. The overall concept is inviting international artists to rethink the values of western society today.
Experience the seven deadly sins at the following museums:
PRIDE – Skovgaard Museet
GREED – Holstebro Kunstmuseum
WRATH – Horsens Kunstmuseum
LUST – Randers Kunstmuseum
GLUTTONY – Museet for Religiøs Kunst
ENVY – Muse(r)um (exhibition in a public space)
SLOTH – Glasmuseet Ebeltoft
The exhibitions can be seen at the seven museums during 04.02. – 28.05. 2017. Admission tickets for one exhibition will give you a reduction of 20% on admission to the other exhibitions.
