Mooncake (2018- )

Consisting initially of 888 celadon glazed mooncakes cast from traditional hand carved molds sourced from North Vietnam; Mooncake is an ongoing 10 part work examining the historic expansionism of China. Utlising the mooncake, a ubiquitous cultural item in Asia that has its origins in China, the work comments on shared cultural values while critiquing China’s current position on and in the South China Sea.  With each reiteration of the work a further 888 mooncakes will be added, expanding the work in direct response to the ‘rise of China’.
