Richon, Olivier, 2013, Show, Exhibition or Event, Acedia
|Abstract or Description:||
The work in the exhibition investigated signs and symbols of acedia in Western art from the Renaissance onwards. The images were juxtaposed with quotations from Gustave Flaubert’s The Temptation of St. Antony (1874), ‘The legend of St Julian the hospitaller’ (from ‘Trois Contes’ (1877)), and Pierre de Marivaux’s ‘Apology of Nothing’ (‘L’eloge du rien’, from the novel ‘Pharsamon ou Les Folies romanesques'(1737)). The work signified ideas of idleness and boredom through objects and situations, reinterpreting the iconography of the deadly sins.
