The Guardians

Five pairs of spoons, fibre glass and plated silver, teak wood - Table 60 x 120 x 80 cm

2012

Installation with plated silver spoons with the grips of different animal legs: frog, chicken, duck, goat, and pig. Inspired by the guardian lion, which is a symbolic element for protection and prosperity, used at sites where the Chinese people have immigrated and settled, including Chinatowns all over the world. These spoons are made to feed all newcomers, migrants, refugees, settlers, and sojourners, and to give them strength.
