‘Secret whispers’ is an exhibition project by artists from all over the world to explore creation from misunderstandings.
Rumors are tales and gossip, which mix with contemporary legends, often reflecting the fears and anxieties of society. This project explores how a message could be distorted through a thread of people, creating a common story, in order to explore the act of communal creation.
Each of the participating artists creates a video message in their mother tongue language, messages that connect the artists creating a narrative. In addition, they send a piece of work by post to be part of the exhibition too.
This project has been a collaboration between Chinese, Spanish, Italian, American, Colombian artists and many others from a wide range of countries. More than forty contributing artists are already waiting for the exhibition to see the final result of the work. This project selected by the I Bristol Biennial, to be part of the event in June 2012 (Bristol, UK). In addition, it will be part of a book to be published.
To exhibit this pioneering project we request £100 to hire the exhibition space during the Bristol Biennial and to help with materials for the work display.
Funders will be rewarded with a limited edition items created for the show. I will personally send them by post. Any donation would be really appreciated.
