This Art Exhibit Literally Lets You Bury Your Worst Secrets
If you’ve made it this far in life without some skeletons in your closet, then we commend you on being the world’s most perfect human. But if you’ve got a secret or two tucked away — no matter how big or small — then Creative Time’s new art commission was tailor-made for you. Finally, you’ll be able to get those secrets off your chest in the most dramatic and artistic way possible: by cemetery burial and ritual fire.
“Here Lie the Secrets of the Visitors of Green-Wood Cemetery” is the brainchild of French conceptual artist Sophie Calle. For the next 25 years, visitors to Brooklyn, New York’s Green-Wood Cemetery will have the opportunity to submit their secrets to the art exhibition. The secrets will stay encased in a marble obelisk designed by the artist, until they are burned periodically, in ceremonial bonfires led by Calle.
The art exhibit kicks off on April 29 and 30, so book your tickets ASAP if you want your confessions to be the first ones in the scandalous pot. In-between pouring our heart out and letting things go, visitors will also get the chance to take a tour of the historical Green-Wood Cemetery. While we can’t guarantee you’ll run into any ghosts, you’ll definitely be in the presence of past memories.
