Wishgarden

Produced by Pilar & Joan Miró Foundation.

Participative performance set up like a game. The sculpture, a human size bird cage, is a kind of “funfair attraction” to exercise one’s skilfulness and fortune. The base of the piece is a brazier filled up with soil.

For a number of days, the audience is invited to write down a wish or message on a special sheet of paper prepared for the occasion. Once concluded, the author shall crumble the sheet, stand at a certain distance of the sculpture and attempt to throw the paper into the cage. The next step of the performance is to fill the sculpture with “wishes”. At the end of the day the papers will burn and the piece will rapidly turn into a huge luminary.
