Spaces of Exchange – Oral Fixation: Food for Thought
For SE’s fourth session, Shellie Zhang, Crys Yin and Jacqueline Kok will dive into the various popular Asian iconographies presented as food and consumer goods packaging to unpack notions of tradition, nationality, and diaspora. While food is often celebrated and described as being a uniting force, we cannot help but wonder where the line between appreciation and assimilation is drawn. Looking at tangible goods, the discussion will unpack the contradictions and frustrations that exist in everyday presentation and consumption of Asian imagery and motifs. Zhang’s use of Asian motifs are inspired by her interest towards the concept of cultural diversity, while Yin’s exploration leans more towards understanding the complexities behind cultural inclusion.
