CONGEE at the Southbank Centre, August 2023

CONGEE started in 2022, in collaboration with F.A.T. Studio︎︎︎. CONGEE is a series of installations that transform art spaces into temporary canteens where I cook and serve Hong Kong style congee. Congee is a traditional savoury rice porridge that is widely eaten across Asia, however is difficult to find in the UK. The installation combines a number of elements, including performance, sculpture, painting, film and graphic design. You can find out more details and pictures of each iteration of CONGEE by clicking the posters below

CONGEE is a collaborative project, using art spaces to foster a sense of community and cultural connection over a bowl of warm congee. Special thanks to Rachel Sale, Ellie Dobbs, Sasha Galitzine, Cedar Lewisohn, friends and family who have helped me along the way in supporting the project.
