Seven Deadly Sins

Performance series 2009 -2011. The first seven years (2002 – 2008) of the VN project we dedicated to seven negative aspects of life that are commonly known as the seven deadly sins. Our notion is that anger, gluttony, greed, lust, sloth, envy and pride are core aspects of every individual’s identity. Each of these human attributes opens a conflict which is built into the subjective self of each individual: on one hand, one builds mechanisms and strategies of defence from these negative drives to conform to society’s demands of control and suppression of these drives; on the other, one develops various forms of release, because one cannot stand the pressure of one’s own subjectivity.
