While in many artistic fields the focus lies on the perception of the works by the public – what they see, feel and think – it is undoubtedly rarer to see this issue reversed: how do artists perceive the public? What happens when one prepares to meet people whose face one has not yet seen? How does one address something to people one does not know? Secretan shared these questions with other artists, whose work she loves and admires. She then invited these artists to create a work destined for a single, unknown person. With Les bonnes œuvres, every day during the festival, a member of the public will be surprised with an original work offered to them out of the blue. Sometimes great encounters begin with a complete misunderstanding!
