The Confessional

The Confessional at HOME at HOME Manchester, Manchester and online, Until 18 February 2023, free entry - Visit now

As part of PUSH Festival 2023, digital art and performance company idontloveyouanymore is bringing a piece of cathartic art to Manchester’s HOME and the online sphere. A space to release your secrets, great and small.

The project will exist in a virtual space and on live screens at HOME, awaiting the audiences’ secret responses. Described as ritual for the digital age, the creators of The Confessional took inspiration from real-life ritual monuments like the Newgrange Passage Tomb as well as projects like PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions From Ordinary Lives, where people were invited to send in anonymous postcards sharing the hidden aspects of their lives.

Over the period of four weeks, anyone can send in a secret, a worry, or any thought you may want to get rid of. These will then be sealed in a virtual crate, marked with three initials of the author’s choice and the date.

On the day of release, the crates will be set on fire by a virtual match and the virtual blaze will burn for 48 cleansing hours.
