A work about the human condition; intimacy, trust and freedom of expression which is one of the most zealously defended rights within our culture.
“Kept Secrets” is an installation-performance, in which a large number of bricks are used in building a wall. Each brick has a secret sealed inside, confessed and sealed by the persons participating in the event. The documentation therein acquires a very private meaning, not even the artist himself will inquire as to the secrets of the spectator. It is a work about the human condition; intimacy, trust and freedom of expression which is one of the most zealously defended rights within our culture. This installation is charged with “content” and is of an anonymous social meaning. Anonymous as an urban landscape, and as secret as the perennial silence of our neighbors’ houses. In general, David Prusko’s work is created from a psychological perspective. The apparent serenity of life in the suburbs is a unifying theme in his work, as a generalized monotony, without contrasts or drama shifts — something abundantly used in David Lynch’s movies — where tranquility is the mechanism that engenders the unexpected.
