The Garden of Earthly Delights


Inhabiting the dark, atmospheric spaces of a vast, disused historic building in Cardiff Bay, tactileBOSCH present Garden Of Earthly Delights, a multi-media gesamtkunstwerk incorporating installation, video, sonic art, interdisciplinary collaborations and spontaneous interventions, kicked off with a wild night of live music and visceral performance art. The itinerant collective will then, for startling contrast, reconfigure the exhibition in the sparse, light-flooded angular spaces of the Stadium Plaza.

Garden Of Earthly Delights is a love letter to Hieronymus Bosch, on the 500th anniversary of this most enigmatic and influential artist.
