Fantasy Water

There are certain things that always hang on my heart: bottles of “fantasy water” and tributes before the shrine in my grandma's house. The series of film, objects and installation present magical power in my own life do not just come from intangible deities. Though I am also hesitant about the efficacy of the spiritualized “fantasy water” at different levels. Does it have the power to positively affect the environment in which we live, which is always full of hope and despair? The work consistently reminds us what present here is not necessarily perfect “fantasy water”, but I hope that visitors can explore this ambiguous experience, relying on the human touch within this storytelling for guidance.
