Sao Fan took inspiration for this project from a German film, PERFUME – a story about an olfactory orphan genius and his homicidal quest for the perfect scent. The leading actor discovered that the perfect perfume came from the human body. So, in search of the perfect scent, he cruelly murdered his target human. The painting presents, in a strange way, a complicated combination of the soul and imagination-world of the leading actor, demonstrating the conflicts between desire and humanity; evil and goodness.
Under the control of the leading actor’s desire, the secret garden outside the window was filled with flowers of evil, which turned into raw materials for perfume. The holy and pure woman, wafted into the house in elegant way, scrubbed her heart and soul out, and poured them into a perfume bottle. At that time, the leading actor made her scent into the unique perfume.
