about this work
This ordinary medicine pot is an object that frequently appeared throughout the artist's childhood. Today, the pot is still used to brew Chinese medicines. With increasing global modernisation it is an object that has barely altered. The artist installed it within a circular structure, almost like a model for thinking, or like waiting for the intervention of an event within an abstract state of tranquility.
