( The audiences will experience Taiwan history with all different senses in this event )
Taiwan has received waves of migrants since the beginning of its written history. Together, these people of distinctive cultural backgrounds witnessed the island’s historical milestones: colonisation, martial law administration and democratisation. Centuries of cultural collision and fusion have shaped Taiwan into a multi-faceted country, but its historical complexity often leads to discussions on what constitutes the Taiwanese identity and which culture best represents Taiwan.
Curated by architect Rain Wu and designer Shikai Tseng in collaboration with chef Chung-Ho Tsai, Research & Development Chef at the renowned Taiwanese fine dining restaurant Pasadena, and excute by Raymond Feng, ex-Sous Chef of Le Monde de Joël Robuchon London, with supports from architectural designer Lydia Chang. Reflecting on the history of Taiwan, the dishes serve as a reminder that cultural collision and fusion have been and will continue to be powerful forces that propel the country towards a united yet diverse utopia.
(Each dish not only presents the story with the important incident of Taiwan, but also combine interactive experience through all different senses.)
An experimental tasting menu of five dishes will guide the audience on a narrated journey through the installation’s themes. Each session (pre-book only) lasts for approximately 45 minutes.
