Venice Biennale: The Belgian Pavilion – Feuilleton. Angel Vergara’s Feuilleton, is the name of the exhibition in the Belgian Pavilion curated by Luc Tuymans. “This exhibition created by Angel Vergara is principally a reflection based around the theme of the Seven Deadly Sins, such as desire, anger sloth… Using this theme as a leitmotif applied to contemporary society is a way of infecting a sort of virus into the range of trivial images that the media floods us.” Tuymans explains.
