BOSCH. VISIONS ALIVE

  • «IN SPITE OF ALL THE INGENIOUS, ERUDITE AND IN PART EXTREMELY USEFUL RESEARCH DEVOTED TO THE TASK OF ‘DECODING JEROME BOSCH’, I CANNOT HELP FEELING THAT THE REAL SECRET OF HIS MAGNIFICENT NIGHTMARES AND DAYDREAMS HAS STILL TO BE DISCLOSED. WE HAVE BORED A FEW HOLES THROUGH THE DOOR OF THE LOCKED ROOM; BUT SOMEHOW WE DO NOT SEEM TO HAVE DISCOVERED THE KEY.»

    Erwin Panofsky (1892–1968), art historian

  • «HIERONYMUS BOSCH, WHAT MEANS YOUR FRIGHTENED FACE/ AND PALE APPEARANCE? IT SEEMS AS THOUGH YOU JUST/ SAW ALL INFERNAL SPECTRES FLY CLOSE AROUND YOUR EARS./ I THINK THAT ALL THE DEEPEST RINGS OF MISERLY PLUTO/ WERE REVEALED, AND THE WIDE HABITATIONS OF HELL/ OPENED TO YOU – BECAUSE YOU ARE SO ARTFUL/ IN PAINTING WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND DEPICTIONS/ OF ALL THAT THE DEEPEST BOWELS OF HELL CONTAIN».

    Dominicus Lampsonius (1532–1599), Flemish humanist, poet and painter

  • «MAN WAS FORMED OF DUST, SLIME, AND ASHES; WHAT IS EVEN MORE VILE, OF THE FILTHIEST SEED. HE WAS CONCEIVED FROM THE ITCH OF THE FLESH, IN THE HEAT OF PASSION AND THE STENCH OF LUST, AND WORSE YET, WITH THE STAIN OF SIN. HE WAS BORN TO TOIL, DREAD, AND TROUBLE; AND MORE WRETCHED STILL, WAS BORN ONLY TO DIE. HE COMMITS DEPRAVED ACTS BY WHICH HE OFFENDS GOD, HIS NEIGHBOR, AND HIMSELF; SHAMEFUL ACTS BY WHICH HE DEFILES HIS NAME, HIS PERSON, AND HIS CONSCIENCE; AND VAIN ACTS BY WHICH HE IGNORES ALL THINGS IMPORTANT, USEFUL, AND NECESSARY. HE WILL BECOME FUEL FOR THOSE FIRES WHICH ARE FOREVER HOT AND BURN FOREVER BRIGHT; FOOD FOR THE WORM WHICH FOREVER NIBBLES AND DIGESTS; A MASS OF ROTTENNESS WHICH WILL FOREVER STINK AND REEK.».

    Pope Innocent III, “On the Misery of the Human Condition,” XII century

  • «THIS IS ABOVE MY UNDERSTANDING. SO I SHALL KEEP SILENT.».

    Unknown philosopher. XVI century.

  • «THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WORK OF BOSCH AND THAT OF OTHER PAINTERS LIES IN THE FACT THAT THE OTHERS DEPICT MAN AS HE APPEARS ON THE OUTSIDE. ONLY BOSCH DARED TO PAINT HIM THE WAY HE IS ON THE INSIDE».

    Jose de Siguenza, librarian and historian at the monastery of El Escorial (1605)

  • WHO CAN RELATE ALL THE WONDROUS AND STRANGE FANTASIES THAT HIERONYMUS BOSCH CONCIEVED IN HIS MIND AND EXPRESSED WITH HIS BRUSH GRUESOME PICTURES OF SPOOKS AND MONSTERS OF HELL, OFTEN LESS PLEASANT THAN GRUESOME TO LOOK AT?”

    Karel van Mander - «Lives of the illustrious Netherlandish and German painters»

  • «FOR THEY ARE A NATION VOID OF COUNSEL, NEITHER IS THERE ANY UNDERSTANDING IN THEM. O THAT THEY WERE WISE, THAT THEY UNDERSTOOD THIS, THAT THEY WOULD CONSIDER THEIR LATTER END! »

    Deuteronomy 32: 28-29 - (These Bible verses are seen on Hieronymus Bosch’s painting “The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things”)

The exhibition „HIERONYMUS BOSCH. Visions Alive“

Is an ambitious multimedia project, that will take you to the surreal world of one of the most original Renaissance artists.

The authors of the installation were able to breathe new life into the epic painting of the mysterious master. With the help of dynamic animations of Bosch characters and the background, music and lights, the observer can immerse themselves perfectly into the fantastic world of Hieronymus Bosch. To a world, where an agonizing desire intertwines with eternal sin and suffering as well  as redemption. Take the amazing journey through a crooked mirror, able to masterfully portray the human soul in all its nakedness.

In the exhibition area of “HIERONYMUS BOSCH. Visions Alive “, the organizers sought to gather all existing information about Hieronymus Bosch’s life and works. The multimedia section is a true carnival of fantastic visions of  the most original artist. The realm of strange animals, demons, materialised visions, and tortured souls is constantly changing and intertwining, helping to create one of the most amazing worlds captured on canvas.
