"I wanna eat something good" – how many times do you hear this phrase every day in Hong Kong? Reflecting the importance of eating in the lives of local residents, the oft-heard refrain has inspired guest curator Janet Fong to invite six artists to join her in a food-themed exhibition project filled with local flavours.

The participating artists create works around the axis of food and art. Choi Yan-chi sets out to facilitate a dialogue with participants on virtual space and trigger an exchange of thoughts through sharing food. Freeman Lau is planning to create a gigantic fortune cookie for visitors to make wishes in the gallery. Samson Young will present a contemporary version of "Coffee Cantata", a secular cantata by JS Bach in 1732. Li Peng takes inspirations from local history, rituals and tableware. Ng Ka-chun begins with the concept of a greenhouse and is creating handmade utensils from the wooden handles of hoes, not only to extend the life of farming tools through his craftsman's skills, but also to care about the development of local farming and Morgan Wong expresses his concerns about issue of lifespan through his installation work.

Food and art are ideologically similar in many aspects. Connecting the two in this project, Janet Fong enables the audience to enjoy an exquisite and novel buffet that opens up our senses of sight and taste to a cornucopia of sensory experiences.
