A Little Heart is QimmyShimmy's third solo exhibition combining food, culture and memories. This series features QimmyShimmy’s twist on dim sum (点心), a style of Chinese cuisine that dates back to the Tang and Song dynasties but remains much loved and relevant today.
Opening night: Saturday, September 7, from 6–9 pm. Free entry. QimmyShimmy will be in attendance.
The sculptures, placed in traditional steamer baskets and porcelain bowls, combine the beauty of Chinese delicacies with the artist’s signature touch of macabre. The series started as a reaction to the common taunt that “Chinese people eat everything” and questions why a cuisine that has millennia of history and craft is rarely associated with elegance and beauty in cultures outside its own.
