燒烤設置 (Barbecue Setting)
Inspired by Chinese Export Porcelain, 燒烤設置 (Barbecue setting) is a spotlight on China’s shift into a global leadership position. This work discusses the tables that are currently turning. For centuries, China has produced for the Western market but is now becoming an economic behemoth, thereby dictating the global consumer market. 燒烤設置 exists to highlight cultural identities being appropriated and lost in translation. By packaging low brow American culture (in this case the iconic backyard barbecue) in the aesthetic of the illustrious and ubiquitous blue and white porcelain (a product which was a foundation to the beginning of global economic exchange), an absurd product is created.
