Guilty pleasure  

The concept of “guilty pleasure” is used in the English language to describe things, actions, or activities that provide pleasure but carry a sense of guilt or shame due to their perceived impropriety, low value, or societal nonconformity. This term suggests that individuals take pleasure in something they may hesitate to openly share or discuss due to fear of judgment or misunderstanding. 

In the realm of contemporary art, the act of creating art purely for personal pleasure, divorced from critical or exploratory intent, can also be categorized as a “guilty pleasure.” Many artists engage in this form of expression yet choose to keep such works concealed. The presented project is dedicated to this very practice, with the artworks serving as documentation of this artistic behavior.
