LUXURIA - lust describes the cultivation of a sensation that is considered urgent and pleasurable. None of the seven deadly sins fascinates us as much as lust. It represents the other, the unknown, the forbidden, the one impalpable thing which stimulates our minds to fantasize and prevails over rationality and restrained instinct. In our system of signs, the terms seduction, desire, and immoral behavior are closely related to it. Thus, lust means not only physical desire, but also erotic glare. In art and literature, this abstract idea is usually embodied as female figure, in the form of a Femme Fatale. But what happens when the traditional way of depicting allegories loses its value and how does LUXURIA takes shape in times of abstraction as well as media and conceptual art?
