Festival of Learning - Richard Dedomenici

Shed Your Fears is the latest work by artist Richard Dedomenici, "one of the most intellectually gifted, imaginative and dedicated performance artists in the UK today “(the Scotsman).

Richard's work is often street based, humorous, subversive and political, reflecting his ongoing artistic mission to cause the kind of uncertainty that leads to possibility. Shed Your Fears is a non-denominational, non-hierarchical booth, into which two people get to confess their fears to each other, privately, anonymously and safely. Designed as a response to recent sociopolitical upheavals, the piece invites participating audiences to share their innermost fears, and by sharing them, hopefully transcend them, to the point where they can also share hopes and dreams.

‘Seeing each other for the first time – an emotional and tender moment …after emerging from the #shedyourfears confession booth where without seeing each other, we’d revealed our deepest fears for 20 minutes. An inspired installation…’

Shed Your Fears is a Counterpoints Arts’ commission and will be travelling around the country for the rest of this year.
