WE ALL NEED FORGIVENESS

At one point or another in our lives we all require forgiveness; just as there will also be times when we need to forgive others. Both can be fraught with difficulty. For the 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire, Bindi Cole Chocka exhibited a new multi-channel, video installation titled We All Need Forgiveness (2014) at the Art Gallery of NSW. Here, a wall of monitors shows a collection of people repeating the mantra ‘I forgive you’, creating a symphony of forgiveness.  Alongside this wall, visitors were invited to write their own messages of forgiveness.
