Sleeping 'ae:em

Language Used / Song

On a habitable farmland in the low-elevation mountains, Sleeping 'ae:em assumes the appearance of a giant pangolin lying asleep in a rice-paddy field in fallow period. In the company of bald cypress trees and the local Pek Kong (Earth God) temple, the fantastic beast covered in white scales quietly welcomes visitors of the art festival, and raises public awareness to issues of conservation at the same time.
