Danish artist Michael Kvium’s mode of expression is both fascinating and repellent. Against barren backgrounds, people are often presented as solitary and distorted in a critique of modern society and humanity. This book was published on the occasion of a 2015 exhibition at Dunkers Kulturhus, Helsingborg, Sweden. The exhibition was of work based on the seven deadly sins. Kvium invites us to encounter ourselves darkly, at the same time questioning whether these moral values are still relevant today, from a contemporary perspective. Is it possible that some of the cardinal sins have become accepted driving forces, even virtues, in Western consumerism. Published in collaboration with Dunkers Kulturhus, Helsingborg, Sweden.
