J’AI UN SECRET MERVEILLEUX (Midas)

2006, installation, City Sonic Festival 2006, Mons, Belgium

‘J’ai un secret merveilleux (Midas)’ is an intimate study of bottom of our desire: specifically the kind of desire to devulge one’s secrets. The law of secrets refuses to be spilled over. However, it has conflicting nature of being welled up and always ending up coming out of their broken seals. I have a wonderful secret (inspired by the Greek myth of the king Midas and his donkey ears’ secret) gives visitors to spill their secrets into a ‘secret deposit box’. Then, of course, it is also an observation of misunderstandings. Discreetly spilled secrets would never be distributed correctly. Your secret will be promptly translated wrong and repeated falsely each time. Unassociated numerous secrets will collectively form a long prose of desire, falsely and endlessly. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own portable FM radios. - commissioned by City Sonic Festival 2006, Belgium
