Gurt Swanenberg

Gurt Swanenberg (1976 – ) is a Dutch sculptor. Currently, his work is exposed at the Noordbrabants Museum. His exhibition intends to provoke awareness of the seven deadly sins through visual imagery. Even though the skeletons are painted, Swanenberg takes reference from sticker culture and collage. His overall aesthetic uses anthropology with brand name culture to comment on society’s ills. The presented works relate to greed, wrath, lust, pollution, consumerism and pride. Can you figure out which themes belong to which artworks?
