Guilt Free, Pleas

video installation

Extracted from its original environment of the church and into the ‘neutral’ space of the gallery, a confessional becomes an interactive booth that connects the sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church to the common tropes of the confession-cam utilized by reality television shows. Guilt-Free, Pleas invites a single person to enter into the enclosed space of the confessional, traditionally the position of the Priest. Once seated, a small screen begins to play a mash-up video of clips from the confession-cams of various reality TV shows. Guilt-Free, Please combines pop-culture and religion to celebrate trauma caused by repression.
