ABC Kitchen by Anika Hsiung Schneider is on view daily from January 12 to February 28, 2023. Also on view is Human Nature by Beth Dow.
Anika Hsiung Schneider’s uses hand-built ceramics, large-scale prints, and sculptural lanterns to represent her Chinese-self through an American understanding of Chinese identity. She subverts, reclaims, and mirrors Europeans’ invention of chinoiserie, an imitation and interpretation of Chinese motifs and techniques in art. Interweaving kitchen objects, self-portraiture, animals, and botanical elements, ABC Kitchen creates a Chinese American fable that explores identity and culture and reframes our understanding of Chineseness.
The Silverwood Park Gallery is free to the public and open daily from 9 am – 5 pm. Call 763-694-2091 or email email@example.com for more information.
