"Exodus" is artwork that explores the relationship between sins and pleasure, using a traditional Taiwanese ritual of fulu writing with a contemporary approach. Sins are depicted as chaotic forms that transform into representations of pleasure and regrets, emphasising the transformative nature of this relationship. My artwork contributes to the potential of traditional practices in a contemporary setting.

One can only exit the hell of suffers when they truly face and understand their desires, sins, pleasures and regrets.
