We all have a strong connection with food. We are dependent on it for basic survival, it can fill us with joy and a sense of bliss when we eat ‘comfort’ or ‘favourite’ foods. The food industry is also a multi-billion dollar industry. As the topic of food is becoming increasingly complex — on an individual level, yet also on a much larger socio-political and economic scale, the eight artists who are participating in this exhibition pose questions about ‘Food Matters’ today – with themes ranging from food safety to capitalism, mythology, and hegemonism.
Complex and uniquely personal, this exhibition is literally a feast for the senses, with its diverse viewpoints and interpretations of a shared common need that connects all human beings.
我們每個人跟食物有着密不可分的聯繫。 食物除提供我們生存所需，有時候還帶給我們愉悅，俗語有云：「吃一頓好的。」 時至今日，食品工業動輒是數百億元的產業，在個人層面抑或在社會、政治和經濟模式上，食物衍生出來的議題越來越複雜。此次展覽的八位藝術家圍繞展覽主題，創作出有關食品安全、寓言故事、資本主義影響下，主旋律的種種面向。
