Carrying the weight of a secret all by yourself can be burdensome, but British artist Nicola Anthony has invited a public catharsis.
Entitled Secret Ingredient, this new site-specific artwork will be a collection of private thoughts shared anonymously by the public and woven into an installation of light and language. These sentences, handwritten by the artist, take shape based on the paths mapped during her walks around the Telok Ayer area.
Secret Ingredient will also debut her new collection of circular drawings, based on geography and unknowable secrets.
The exhibition is curated by independent curator Daniela Beltrani.
Opening Reception: Weds 14 Oct, 19.00 until 22.00
Exhibition runs 15 Oct to 30 Nov: Mon-Tues 08:00-21:00, Wed-Fri 08:00-23:00, Sat-Sun 10:00-18:00
LIVE ART DATES:
New secrets will be added by hand to the installation, live at SPRMRKT on 17 October, 15 November and 27 November.
FACE TO FACE CATHARSIS:
Without eyes looking back at you, a confession may stop short of true catharsis. Guests who wish to share their secrets face-to-face with the artist can do so at SPRMRKT on Sunday, 11 October (11am-2pm).
