Food Memories

Food memories was my way of collecting other people’s memories of important life experiences through the food preserving method. I was invited by strangers and people I barely knew at the time to have dinner together at their home. Then they would share their memories brought by the dish with me.

I treasure memories and although these memories were meant to be opened and shared in an exhibition, I kept them unopened, because I found it was too precious that those persons shared so much intimacy and personal life events with me; that those memories deserved to keep preserved over time.
