When in the late 15th century Hieronymus Bosch started conceptualizing his magnum opus The Garden of Earthly Delights, he was determined to portray the Catholic church’s idea of sin and its consequences. Driven by strong religious beliefs, he felt the urge to warn about the effect of worldly fleshy indulgence on the eternal afterlife. But what the Early Netherlandish master might’ve seen as a “fall from grace”, the 21st-century everyman sees as part of the human condition. And so, some 500 years later, Evgen Čopi Gorišek (b. 1994, Slovenia), took the essential elements of the epochal triptych to portray his vision of contemporary life and his own place in it.
