Ying Chen — This is a tea party about potatoes, sugar and democracy

Compost & Cosmos — Summer 2023

It is part of my unfinished work “Potato, Ink, Transitional Justice” and “Sugar Hardware”.
“This is an afternoon tea party about potatoes, sugar and democracy” explores the history of potatoes, sweet potatoes and the nature of sugar through cooking.
Interacting with audiences through a performance of making candied potatoes, exchanging potato recipes and transitional justice histories of different countries through eating and sharing.
