Confessions: an art installation by Candy Chang
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? True when one is bound to a mark of secrecy, guilt or regret, but Candy Chang’s Confessions invites people to confess about whatever troubles their mind. People anonymously shared their confessions on wooden plaques in the P3 Studio at The Cosmopolitan. Along with her team, she exhibited the wooden plaques by hanging them on the walls and also painting select responses onto large red canvases.
Candy Chang stayed at the hotel for a month, gathering over 1500 confessions for her art gallery, which ranged from mostly love to fear. The art installation showcased from July 19 to August 12. Her website described the project as 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’. What’s one of my regrets? Living about 30 minutes away from this art installation and not knowing about the gallery until it ended.
