Deep-incredibly deep, cool things gather and form a good show! The Bath of Caracalla in Ancient Rome is really a good show! “Mysophobia” is a common character of these artists.
Everyday people crowded the Bath of Caracalla. Many strange things happened on the people here who desperately cleaned themselves. Turning right from the hall there was a pavilion where people dressed and undressed. A foreigner named G was trying to dig a deep pit of one square meter. The people after the bath were very surprised when they passed him. Three months later a citizen no longer resisted his curiosity. He bowed and asked G what he’s doing there. G answered: “I am looking for the path that no one has ever passed. We will achieve happiness whatever the weather is!”
Heading from the dressing room there were two big gyms around the colonnade. Roman citizen S knocked the wall heavily with his hammer every day. The marble columns turned up one by one from the huge wall. People asked S what he was doing, and S answered the goddess could not stand any stains so he lifted her up to the sky.
And then there was the swimming pool, and heading right there was a large library separated from the middle. There were always some Roman citizens who hated knowledge hiding a stone in their pockets, and they would smash the books with full strength when no one noticed. But it doesn’t matter. Citizen Y would stick and fix them voluntarily. One time a scholar said to Y: “You are really a loyal servant of wisdom.”Y said, “I have to admit that I don’t know a single word, but broken things always make me sick!”
In ancient Roman people were unfriendly to their armpit hair and always wanted to remove them. Due to the undeveloped technology, every time beauticians pulled up the armpit hair, a scream always burst out. Unexpectedly, the screams attracted many customers for the beauticians. Therefore, they came up with inspiration and turned the screams into an idea to attract customs. When they were free, they would scream constantly, trying to let everyone know their identities and business, or made people think their business was popular.
Welcome you very much to join the cold bath, warm bath and hot bath here. It will be a luxurious and interesting enjoyment to have one more sauna! Baths of Caracalla will make you love cleanness more and more!
关于艺术家 About Artists

杨洋，1993年生于中国内蒙古，2013年肄业于云南艺术学院。他这样描述自己的创作：“在我创作的过程中因个人成长环境的地域性影响产生了某些本能反应地敏感，多数的由来都是在生活中各种相遇得到的启发。来自本能对生活的反馈。社会与宗教身份的审视、图示的消解与转换、无用的劳作。不言而喻也缺少了一些给予理性的思考赋予作品某种定义，况且年轻的生命经验又能有多少经得住推敲沉淀，反而也是在于这种阶段的状况中它在生命里已是那么独一⽆二。”曾参与展览“广州美术学院美术馆游戏：关于艺术的研究之模拟人生”，广州美术学院，广州，中国（2016），并入围2016 IMFW 内蒙古青年电影周纪录片短片单元。

Yang Yang was born in Inner Mongolia, China, in 1993. Drop out from Yunnan Art College in 2013. He describes his creation as: "In the process of my creation, due to the regional influence of my personal growth environment, I had some instinctive sensitiveness. Most of the origins were inspired by various encounters in life and instinctive feedback about life, by examination of social and religious identities, deconstruction and transformation of images, and invalid labor. It is obvious that I also have a missing of some rational thinking and definition of works. Furthermore, few life experiences of young people can stand the scrutiny and precipitation, but it is in this state of phase it has become so unique in its life."
