The Moral of Virtues and Sins
studium’s participation in Concéntrico 08 is a double intervention in Quinta do Seixo and Viña Lanciano. A journey between two places and two eras is created through a monumental route that evokes classicism.
A reflection about contemporaneity, anchored on the perception of classic sins and virtues. A symbolic representation of moral principles through material and matter as substances of criticism. Wine and consumerism as both, conditions and deviations. A travel dispositif enabling a connection between present and past times. The metaphorical narrative about how in classic times wine was the way to escape reality and navigate madness, and how the popular cult of consumerism provides the same inebriant state to humanity.
