Till Your Tears Mixed Up With Mine 02 by Wuchao Feng ©2023

This exhibition explores scent as an art form and challenges the perception of scent as a mere cosmetic item. Scent, though invisible, is deeply ingrained in our human DNA and possesses the power to evoke emotions and memories. With this latest edition“Scent-Scient,” the curator Marie Camara, takes a bold step, showcasing the works of seasoned alumni from the prestigious Royal College of Art (RCA) alongside the exhibiting scent creator, Misia-O’. This olfactory artist is a multi-disciplinary individual, using perfumery, photography, film and writing as her medium.
