I have created this wooden box with a hole in it (like the peeking curtain) for the Material Girls Exhibition, which is currently full of secrets, secrets that shall be revealed and blogged and shared with the whole world! SOON!
PREPARE TO (S)PEEK
by performing artist: Karo Tak
part of the MATERIAL GIRLS EXHIBITION 2012 at the Moonah Arts Centre
SHARE YOUR SECRET
Inspired by my latest work: prepare to (s)peek: a live art interactive theatre installation in which I invite the audience into an intimate world of secrets about love, travel, & the fragility of womankind you are currently looking at my box, stop looking at my box, share your secret.
PREPARE TO (S)PEEK binds in perfectly with the Material Girls Exhibition theme: SPEAK TO ME, as that is exactly the core of this work, inviting the audience, yes that’s YOU to “share their secrets” to “speak to me”
You are all invited to share your secret, & the best secrets will be used in a short story you can view straight after the exhibition (1st of June) on my website: www.karotak.com
PREPARE TO (S)PEEK is as much about art as it is about community, about the fragility of woman kind & the secrets we keep, the things we hide, how liberating it is when we actually SPEAK & OPEN UP and share our secrets, burdens, fears, frustrations, dreams, fantasies with other women, PREPARE TO (S)PEEK provokes, creates, encourages.
Come (s)peek for yourself.
SECRETS TO BE REVEALED IN…… 15 days!
This is it.
The time has come.
Time to reveal.
Time to share the secrets kept for so long by so many.
The golden age is coming, it isn’t so much a secret as not noticed. But it is happening. I have kept secrets for so long it is now time to tell the world, without the world ever knowing it was me, because let’s face it you don’t know who i am, so let me confess world, this is me: i am obsessed with one direction, i do not love my husband not like that anymore, i miss the child i never held, i love the man i work with but nobody knows, i am not sure i agree with monogamy, i kissed a girl once and i liked it, i fall in love with all my friends and i am afraid i have compromised my inner self in exchange for financial security. Last but not least, i fell on the bird & broke it’s leg. It’s all a little crazy isn’t it, such a relief to finally reveal, to finally release and share this with the world, with you.
Thank you for listening.
Thank you for sharing.
