7 Cardinal Sins


This year, I joined in ‘Fringe Arts at the Forum‘ as the part of Sydney Fringe Festival again with new body of photograph work, ‘7 Cardinal Sins’.

One of admirable artists, Hieronymus Bosch painted ‘The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things’ with the eye of God in the centre of the paint symbolizing that no sins can be hidden.

I inserted my own interpretation with self performance rather than religious theme aspect.

: ‘Pride’ as narcissism and pedantic attitude,

 ‘Gluttony’ as beyond limit of food consumption,

 ‘Greed’ as endless thirst of materialism,

 ‘Wrath’ as out-of-controlled anger,

 ‘Envy’ as blindness of jealousy,

 ‘Lust’ as hypocritical desire,

 ‘Sloth’ as the irritating sluggard following the Proverbs in the Bible  ” As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him” and as the extreme laziness following the Korean folklore about the lazy wife who starved to death because she couldn’t reach her tong to rice cakes on her forehead of the face which her husband place them on while her husband was away quite for a while.

 Strolling around the gallery on my minding day, I felt feministic sense strongly from other participating artists’ works presented in each own medium including the book of photographs with storytelling,  silkscreen printing, sculpture, installation, drawing and painting.

Fringe Arts at the Forum

It is the first time to be involved with the Sydney Fringe Festival and I am so glad to be part of this show ‘Fringe arts at the Forum’ with diverse talented art works of sculpture, drawing, installation, performance, industrial design and photo media.

I got the chance to get more information this time from the new director of this festival, Lew Palaitis  as I joined in the exhibition ‘Vinyl’ at the Hardware gallery which he used to run. Since I have wanted to show my whole series of images from my photography project ‘InterNation Renaissance’, I was happy to apply for the exhibition.

It all started with the artist info night at the ‘505’ with live music and the pleasure of bumping into other artists. And  the opening night at the great venue ‘ Italian Forum Cultural Centre’ was filled with the warmth of friends who visited and appreciated art works. I need to check out more creative avant-garde artists and enjoy the festival.
