AL Works,UNO(织城网络)和智利领事馆很高兴向大家联合介绍 Secreto(秘密),一个与智利艺术家María P. Vila合作发起,旨在通过分享秘密连接世界各地社区的艺术装置。基于秘密对人类潜意识的触发作用,P. Vila邀请人们阅读他人的秘密并同时也留下自己的。通过这种方式,一个私密的信息网络将以自发的方式编织显现,而这也将同时触发人们关于自我记忆的反思。

Secreto(秘密)想要发现那些来自不同文化背景下的秘密,以便使用社会的,地理的,文化的和其他特殊的原则来分析这种社会现象。秘密本身就是文化和社区中非常重要的组成部分,通过对秘密的深入了解与关注,人们将明白那些我们并没有说出口的和我们口中所常说的其实同等重要。项目期望为所有参与者提供一个秘密的发声渠道,以创造一种与众不同的集体历史。

在装置结束其一年的全球旅行后,P. Vila会将所有内容编辑到一本书中,提供一个关于项目的全方位记录。这本书将包括一篇关于秘密原则的文章、所收集的秘密集、装置图像、图形学家对所选秘密的解读以及关于作品本身的社会学和心理学研究。

如今,Secreto(秘密)已经前往过瓦尔帕莱索、圣地亚哥、巴塞罗那、纽约、纳瓦拉、罗马、汉堡、伦敦、上海、柏林,共收集了由数十种语言书写超过一千个的秘密。继在韩国展览后,Secreto(秘密)将来到中国,目标是收集至少3,000个秘密。

AL Works, UNO and The Consulate of Chile, are pleased to present Secreto, a collaborative installation by Chilean artist María P. Vila that seeks to engage communities around the world through collecting and sharing secrets. Based on the premise that secrets can generate shadowy places in our unconscious mind, P. Vila invites people to receive the secrets of others and release their own – individuals who read a secret must also leave one, creating a harmonious and reciprocal relationship. Through this means, a web of confidential information will be woven and revealed in a spontaneous way, which will in return prompt are flection about our memories.

The installation is made up of all of the secrets that have already been written (more than one thousand secrets in more than ten languages). Secreto has previously traveled to Valparaíso, Santiago, Barcelona, NYC, Navarra, Rome, Hamburg, London, Shanghai, Berlin. After its installation in Korea, Secreto is now landing in China, with a goal of collecting a minimum of 3,000 secrets.

Maria Luisa Portuondo Vila is a visual artist and stage director. She studied theater arts at Universidad Finis Terraein Santiago, Chile (2001-2005), and earned an MA degree in art, specializing in theater direction at Universidad de Chile (2008-2011). In 2011, due to her urge to draw nearer to audiences, she began her exploratory journey within the realm of installation art and developed the series Cosas que me gusta hacerporquesí(Santiago, Chile). Maria Luisa’s work explores the occupation of non-conventional spaces as well as direct links and encounters with spectators. This stems from her proposal of viewing art as a Situation that occurs at the crossroads of the artistic work, the artist and the perceiver. Maria Luisa has exhibited much of her work in urban spaces and/or those that are not meant for art exhibitions. This is the artistic principle that stands out as one of the highlights of her work. Since 2006, her work has been exhibited in Chile, USA, UnitedKingdom, Spain, Italy, Germany and China. Maria Luisa currently lives and works in NYC and Santiago, Chile.
