History

A live performance by the artist An Hong held at the Centre. The artist invited members of the public to take a cup of his 'Golden Aphrodisiac Soup', an elixir for those who were 'weary, exhausted or suffused in a cloud of lethargy' which he claimed had aphrodisiac properties. He encouraged the 'faithful' to top up their Yang, whilst inviting the skeptical to 'put their doubt to the test'.

The performance pursued the artist interest in modern myths concerning the efficiency of medicines, whether they be traditional or newly 'invented'.
