‘Seven Sins’ Exhibition Opening, Copenhagen, Denmark
8 – 18 Dec 2016
S E V E N S I N S
. Lust . Greed . Gluttony . Envy . Sloth . Wrath . Pride .
An exhibition by architect Yang Wang.
Architecture, like any other art, doesn’t directly represent the nature or an abstract idea, rather the practicalities of natural situations, human life. This project focuses on translating sins into architectural scale pavilions.
For the discourse between art and architecture, there is no so-called right and wrong. We (architects) are constantly rethinking and discussing the relationship in between of them, so are you “kind of blue”? Don’t worry, we are still romantic.
Yang Wang is a Chinese architect based in Denmark. She is a graduate from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Institut for Kunst og Arkitektur.
The project is funded by STATENS KUNSTFOND.

This major retrospective will feature rarely-seen original artwork, including Max’s beautiful (and traffic-stopping at the time) 1914 ‘Wonderground’ map of London Underground stations, Peter Pan map of Kensington Gardens and amazing pictorial map of Theatreland, as well as original posters, personal papers & artefacts unearthed at Gill’s remote Sussex cottage. Much of the work was discovered by Gill’s family rolled up in chests and tucked away under the eaves of the cottage. Max was famous in his day but has become a bit overshadowed by Eric, so the exhibition’s aiming to help bring his work back to the public.
