For Rivane Neuenschwander’s New Museum exhibition A Day Like Any Other, the Brazilian artist is inviting online and in-person visitors to write down their wishes, which will be printed on ribbons hung on the wall for museum-goers to take. On the installation Eu desejo o seu desejo / I Wish Your Wish (2003):
Visitors are invited to select ribbons printed with a wish to tie around their wrists. When the ribbon falls off, tradition has it that one's wish will be fulfilled. Visitors may write another wish and place it in the empty hole. This work of art is based on a similar practice that takes place at the church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim (Our Lord of the Good End) in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.Share your wish.
