NOT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
NFAQ is a performance about questions that we rarely ask of don’t dare to ask in our daily conversations. In an intimate setting the things left unasked and unspoken are placed in front of friends, strangers and passers-by.
The installation takes the shape of a modern shaped confessional. The person asking the question is present, though out of sight. Inside the confessional you find yourself face to face with another unknown person. Giving both participants a moment to reflect on things that are left unsaid in our day to day communication.
NFAQ is a mirror held up to the microcosmos that makes a city. There are places in a city that escape the obligation to be efficient and productive. Places not calling for the need to consume or perform, where you can simply exist, where you can reflect and communicate at a deeper level. It’s an open invitation to the city and it’s inhabitants to make room for what is left unspoken.
