I Must Confess (2018)

 

Video: 0.30 minutes

 

This revision of an older work called Balloon suit was made especially for the Bangkok Underground Film Festival as part of the Bangkok Biennial 2018. Visitors were asked to use their mobile devices to scan QR-codes on beer cans provided by the festival. This brought them to 24 online art confessions in 30 seconds or less. After the beers where finished, the cans were discarded; the confessions along with it.

 

From whispered secrets to crazed proclamations, confessions reveal what was once concealed. Relying on only a confessant, recipient and one’s will to take part, the protected is unhinged into the spotlight and received with reactions ranging from uproar to a petty disregard. What are you ready to share?

 

Confess your love

Confess your sins

Confess your desires

Confess your faults

Confess your dreams

Confess your beliefs

Confess your talents

Confess the mundane

Confess the serious

Confess the great

Confess with sincerity

Confess with hilarity

Confess for relief

Confess for atonement

Confess for fun

Confess for benefit

Confess unfettered
