Enchantments

Enchantments is a series of door mats incorporating mantras taken from fortune telling books, in which I humourously attempt to bring my own artistic success into being through the superstitious gesture of claiming a gallery space and transforming its energy. This desperate measure implies past failures and an underlying uncertainty about my own future as an artist, but in an ironic turn, it could potentially indeed bring me good fortune in my work.
