This is a multimedia installation that integrates the senses of sight, hearing and smell. Through poetic meditation, the artist reconstructs ancient myths when the cosmos was in chaos, deducing a modern absurd drama full of contradictions in time and space, as well as an intoxicating image of the world. In the music of ocarinas and silkworms alongside the smell of wine, we seem to find clues to the three-legged bird, Ping Qi, Kua Fu, Hou Yi, Apollo, Dionysus etc. Astonishing remnants of the world under the current ecological crisis is waiting to be discovered...
