“雙喜樓: Double Happiness Dim Sum is a Chinese restaurant, opening soon in downtown Sydney."
This is the second iteration of this happening/work which took place during 2015 Lumiere Festival (Sydney-Cape Breton, NS).
This work is inspired by Chinese-Canadian restaurants and the objects commonly found in them. Calling into question notions of authenticity through these signs and signifiers, 雙喜樓: Double Happiness Dim Sum explores the mutual fascination of the west to the east and the east to the west - the cultural appropriations, hybridity, and lost-in-translations that happen along the way.
