China — The Dumpling Project. April 26 –30
CHINA (The Dumpling Project)
curated by Peter Williamson
Tue, April 26, 6-8pm:
To explore the notions of cultural impact and exchange, a meal and conversations were created and shared around the influence of all things Chinese on our daily lives and art practice. 160 pork dumplings (one for each year since gold was discovered in NSW which brought the first large numbers of Chinese immigrants into Australia) were created and photographed. As the focus of the shared meal, the exhibition of images of these individual works is the core documentation of the collaborative process. Video and sound installations also provide other details of the evening and further material for reflection.
