Garden Of Modern Delights reveals our warped utopia
"Nicholas Wright has a thing about the media. Previous works
have shown TV sets raining from the sky or pouring from cracks in
walls like a technological plague.
latest spin on the idea takes its title from Hieronymus Bosch's
medieval visions of hell, which in Wright's hands become endlessly
mutating ink and watercolour drawings showing patches of grass strewn
with CDs, games consoles and TV screens; the detritus of modern
media turning into the weeds of an unnatural landscape. Bodies found
in the chaos might be read as optimistic hints of human survival,
but more likely stand for the last remnants of our humanity sinking
into a hellish circle unimagined even by Bosch"
