FIVE SENSES – CHUI LEE LUK IN CONVERSATION WITH AARON SEETO

CARRIAGEWORKS AND 4A CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY ASIAN ART PRESENT

FIVE SENSES – CHUI LEE LUK IN CONVERSATION WITH AARON SEETO

Five Senses: Chui Lee Luk in conversation with Aaron Seeto, coincides with the major exhibition, Song Dong: Waste Not at Carriageworks, a single artwork consisting of over 10,000 objects from the artist’s family home. Conceived by Song Dong following the death of his father, the work represents his mother’s process of mourning and remembrance. Consisting of the entire contents of her house, Waste Not reflects a journey of hardship and grief, resulting in a display of personal resilience and ultimately a celebration of life. Aaron Seeto, Director of 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art will be joined by Chui Lee Luk, chef and current owner of Claude’s, a culinary institution at the forefront of French fine dining for over 35 years, to talk through some of the links and ideas which emerge from this monumental installation, and resonate within her culinary practice.

Chui Lee Luk was born in Singapore and spent her childhood in Malaysia before migrating to Sydney. Her food is admired for its classical French heritage and an innate understanding of South East Asian and Chinese cuisine. The relationship between good eating and life is what drives her creative discipline. Chui Lee Luk recently made a trip to her hometown in Sandakan in Sabah, Malaysia, and Five Senses will explore, through memory and the five senses, her recollections of home and the process of rememberance through food.
