4TH - 2OTH OCTOBER 2018
Expansionism III is an exhibition that engages with complex global issues, examining the fluctuation of power within international political structures. Comprising of two works, Mooncake and The Cow’s Tongue, this exhibition examines the current aims of the Chinese Government to enhance its economic, military and geographic imperialism. These works utilise vernacular cultures and language to interrogate the history of Chinese occupation in places such as Vietnam; and subsequently offer an alternative reading into the currently disputed territories in the South China Sea.
