Out of Body Experience (2018)
The project would have been impossible without the support of the Arts Development Fund of the Home Affairs Bureau, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
In the video installation Out of Body Experience (2018), the artist recaps her experience attending a group exhibition in Los Angeles for free through purchasing witchcraft online that enabled her soul to leave her body. Using metaphysical occurrences as a metaphor, Mak conveys how the global mobility of the Internet accommodates an imagined ease of living in the prevailing conditions of our era. As she ships her soul to Los Angeles via the online network, she overrides the demands of reality and how others expect her to live.
