Book of Monsters (Catharsis)
In this bestiary are a series of confessions sourced from a range of individuals. People of different ages, different backgrounds, different existences, each person has been asked to anonymously confess to an element of guilt that they have in their lives, or perhaps an element of regret, and illustrate these confessions into a beast, monolith, scene or whatever best suits their entry. With regrets, we can let them overcome us, and dictate large portions of our lives, so, by allowing ourselves to give the skeletons in our closet a face, we can try to pair creativity with confession, and allow ourselves to face our regrets eye-to-eye. By giving our regrets a personality, or a physical appearance, we can then begin to purge them from our lives. Hopefully, through this act, by accepting and facing their regrets, the participants can start to purge their monsters. And us, as viewers, can communally grieve, beginning to take our own path in confessing to our regrets, accepting them, and removing them from our lives.
