About the Exhibition
Vials contain various arcane liquids; vapors and perfumed formulas derive from 'recorded data measured by sensors of the heartbeat of the artist. Yet, the clinical easily transmutes into the poetic and the personal. The effect is oddly sensual, even erotic as the artist manages an olfactory manipulation that is subtle and evocative. Finally, Pohan's creative processing, packaging, and ordering, conjures a self-portrait that becomes a metaphor for the bodied and disembodied nature of human response.
