The Wall of Temptation à New York City !

ATTENTION :

 

This Wall is a way to prove the World a group of citizens is no FOOL and is actually saying NO to the system. By resisting temptation in a world that encourages consumption. By refusing to scratch a REAL lottery ticket and exhibiting it like a painting. All of us, together.

That's why I need your support!

 

Your donation will make a real difference!

Thank you,

Clara

 

The Wall of Temptation by Clara Feder is a  worldwide participative art project that was first held in Marseille last October. It has been invited by Cutlog Art Fair NY as one of the Live performances for its next edition May 8 -11, 2014.

 

 

How does the performance work ?

The participants go through an experiment :  they're given a REAL lottery ticket (scratchable).  Will they resist temptation or not?

Those who have resisted  - who haven't scratched -  get to build the Wall of Temptation live, by posting their tickets on the Wall, after they signed it or wrote on it. Their action is immediately photographed by Clara Feder. Their image is posted on the virtual Wall after the performance.

Eventually, the « rebels» are all part of the Wall on the site.

The big question

Can one resist Temptation in a world that does not ?

The Wall of  Temptation tackles the issues of desire and temptation in fast forward societies where the pursuit of consumption and yielding to temptation are encouraged/the norm. 

As an artist, Clara Feder’s role is to question this assumption, stage a situation, propose a confrontation. A lottery ticket is a strong symbol of temptation, a curious object at the crossroads between the indivual, the political and the social realms.

 

History of project

The Wall of Temptation was first performed in Marseille last October, commissionned by FING. 

It gathered 500 people among which 350 participated during the performance hours, among which 280 didn’t scratch their ticket. At all.

In addition to the performance, interviews made it possible to get deeper into the question of temptation.

 

And after?

The next performances will hopefully be held in Hong Kong, Berlin, London.

How will each city fare? Will it resist more or less? How many particpants will scratch? A real cliff hanger here!

Patrick de Wilde : an artist came to the first performance because he wanted NOT to resit tempation, but ended up resisting. Why ? Here’s what he wrote.

Allocation of funds

We are asking for what we think is going to make the Wall of Temptation go to New York at a minimum cost :

 

travel from Marseille to New York city

building the Wall on location (The Wall is 118in by 59in)

mounting and demounting the performance stand

video shooting

people helping

and, of course, buying the tickets ! (because, in case you still have doubts, they are REAL lottery tickets !)

eventually, if you feel like giving us more than what we're asking for, please do so, you'll be more than welcome!
