Confusius theory by artist Carina Wagenaar

The expression “Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” originally come from the philosopher Confucius, who lived from 551 to 479 b.c. in China. He said to his disciples, “do not look at, do not listen to, do not speak out and not focus on what is in violation of proprieties”.

The series of objects are based on this expression, of which a lot of things you can see, hear and tell about. The contradictions within the performances as well as the contradictions of picture and sound from the built-in music box give an almost alienating effect. The viewer gets the ability to create their own story.
