Guillaume Ziccarelli . + Creative Time

Here Lie the Secrets of the Visitors of Green-Wood Cemetery is a 25 year long new public artwork by Sophie Calle. The project debuted with a two daylong inaugural event on April 29th and 30th, 2017.To inaugurate the project, the public was invited to Green-Wood Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, to privately unburden and inter their most intimate confessions.
During the two-day opening, in a setting nestled among the mausoleums and monuments of Green-Wood’s verdant rolling hills, visitors transcribed their secrets onto paper, and deposited them into the earth below, through a slot on a marble obelisk of Calle’s design. The artist was on hand during the two-day event to receive some visitors’ secrets.
