Sekretas.lt is Lina Fisheye's MA artistic research project (in photo - documentation from MA defense, June 2014). As a project it will carry on until the secrets stop gravitating towards it. Everyone is invited. Please visit www.sekretas.lt
What is a secret? What hides behind a secret? What, why and how does a man hide? Can it be that human mysteries are a repetition of the secret of Being? Is it possible by analizing man’s secrets to get to know something about Being?
In this project I draw upon the ontological metaphysical paradigm that Being is the biggest secret and the man, by virtue of being a part of Being, i.e. Dasein, repeats and reflects its composition, principles, and laws. Since Being is an eternal unknown and a “revealing wholeness”, I started investigating man’s secrets hoping through them to find out something about Being itself. Having noticed the tension that is created by man’s secrets and the need to reduce it – to unburden, I created a website www.sekretas.lt, where the visitors were invited to share their secrets. This platform became my research field. I have conducted a poll of the MA students of the Art Academy. Both the website and the poll confirmed the hypothesis that secrets create tension, and this tension conditions the need to unburden them. This was also confirmed by the installation “The Room of Secrets” that I created at the Cultural Marathon in 2014.
