This exhibition by Kristel Bechara is inspired by the series of events that took place in the past year. It recalls the poem ‘Psychomachia’ by Latin poet, Prudentius which revolves around the battle between the virtues of hope, sobriety, chastity and humility against the vices of pride, wrath, paganism and avarice. The battle culminates with each virtue prevailing over its opposing vice, with chastity defeating lust, anger surrendering to patience and love being victorious over greed.
