Taking place in the former warehouse at Soulangh Sugar Factory, Phinn Phang/The Scent of Sweetness is inspired by my father’s childhood memory where he biked past Soulangh Sugar Factory absorbing the sweet odor emitted from the processed sugar canes. Combining installation and actions, the piece extracts the impression of domestic routine from daily life and twists it into an uncanny scene.
