Confessions by Candy Chang

What happens in Vegas…

As they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas - but what if we could share with full discretion? Confessions is a public art project that invites people to anonymously share their confessions and see the confessions of the people around them in the heart of the Las Vegas strip.

As Artist-in-Residence at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, organized by The Cosmopolitan and Art Production Fund, Candy lived in the The Cosmpolitan for a month and turned its P3 Studio gallery into a contemplative place for people to anonymously share their confessions. Inspired by Post Secret, Shinto shrine prayer walls, and Catholicism, people could write and submit their confessions on wooden plaques in the privacy of confession booths. Candy hung the anonymous plaques on the gallery walls and painted select responses on large canvases. The space also featured original, contemplative music by Oliver Blank – listen to it here.

By the end of the exhibit, over 1500 confessions were displayed on the walls (more photos to come). Over half were about sex, love, or fears of dying alone. By collecting the confessions of the hotel’s visitors, this project seeks to create a cathartic sanctuary for this temporary community and help us see we are not alone in our quirks, experiences, and struggles as we try to lead fulfilling lives. July 19 – Aug 12, 2012.
