Stinking Rich: The Cost of Wealth at Centrespace Gallery


Stinking Rich: The Cost of Wealth explores the impact extreme wealth is having on communities and the environment.

During the 19th Century wealthy occupants of tombs wanted to be in a position to leave their coffins should they be interred prematurely.
The tombs were therefore not buried and being open to the air, the decomposing bodies of the wealthy occupants were inclined to smell – hence the term ‘stinking rich’.

The exhibition focuses in on the activities of seven billionaires:
Richest male in the world: Jeff Bezos (Amazon)
Richest female in the world: Alice Walton (Walmart)
Richest male in GB: James Dyson (Dyson)
Richest female in GB: Kirsten Rausing (Tetra Pak)
British male billionaire benefitting most from Covid: Jim Ratcliffe (Ineos)
British female billionaire benefitting most from Covid: Denise Coates (BET365)
The billionaire to give away 100% of his wealth: Chuck Feeney (now rents a 2 bed flat in NY)
