Title

Wu Mali

Description

Understanding art making as a form of social critique, in 2016 Wu Mali embarked on a long-term project titled Cijin’s Tongue. Set up with the support of the National Sun Yat-sen University in the kitchen of a former military dormitory in Cijin District (Taiwan), Cijin’s Tongue is a multicultural lab for social innovation. Over the last century, what used to be a fishermen’s village turned into a container port and tourist destination gathering a diverse community of inhabitants hailing from China and Southeast Asia. Focusing on the quotidian act of food consumption, Wu utilises cooking, eating, tasting, and sharing as heuristic tools to examine processes of social change brought about by colonialism, the Cold War, and globalisation. During the residency, she plans to broaden the scope of her research by exploring analogous patterns of change in the specific context of Singapore researching local food economies and practices of food consumption.
