"the faces of guanxiu's sixteen friends, the luohans of his feverish dreams "
20 Jun - 27 Jul 2019
Guanxiu drank some bad wine one night. The wine had been left out in the sun for several days and had turned a sour brown and solidified into a thick murky vinegar. He fell into a deep feverish dream shortly after. In his dream he was sitting on a smooth flat stone in a pleasant clearing with a little pond. He was desperately thirsty. A luohan appeared with a vessel in hand, dipped it into the pond and offered it to him. He greedily drunk the cool liquid down, but it only made him more thirsty. One by one the other 16 luohans came through, each with a different vessel, each offering him a drink, each sip making him even more mad with thirst. After they had all passed through Guanxiu awoke, fumbled around, found the wine bottle, had another drink and fell back asleep.
