‘夢式㈡ 人造人造人’










Semen, blood
And a warm field

The alkali of the alligator
Rewrites the formula of Chrysopoeia


精液 血液
還有溫暖的場域

    
鱷魚的鹼
改寫了點石成金的口訣



                                             



The work depicts the tragedy of creating homunculus. It is inspired by the following passage by Paracelsus: »De natura rerum (1537)«


“That the sperm of a man be putrefied by itself in a sealed cucurbit for forty days with the highest degree of putrefaction in a horse's womb, or at least so long that it comes to life and moves itself, and stirs, which is easily observed. After this time, it will look somewhat like a man, but transparent, without a body. If, after this, it be fed wisely with the Arcanum of human blood, and be nourished for up to forty weeks, and be kept in the even heat of the horse's womb, a living human child grows therefrom, with all its members like another child, which is born of a woman, but much smaller.”
