The Intimate Order：Food‧Human being ─ The Professional Essay and Glue Color Painting Work of Chiu, Yen-Chun
Glue color painting
This study focuses on the the lifelong and profound relationship that people have with food in their everyday life. From an anthropological point of view, such relationships can be traced as early as in the origins of civilization and, furthermore, in the activities of daily living, people have interactions with food on different levels. From the perspective of material culture, food is the agency that connects us with other people in the society: In other words, it is the medium in which we share our sense of values, activities and lifestyle with each other. If we pay particular attention to this dietary interactions, then multiple implications of food start to reveal, in distinct occasions in different cultures, how food is inseparable from people’s everyday life. From the origins of civilization till the structural changes of dietary habits, the significance of food in different space and time with its many distinctive meanings can be extracted. The cultural development of the images of food in China and the West can be sketched by taking a closer look at the depiction of food in the Eastern and Western paintings. Comparing food depicted in the early paintings with cultural studies of food in the modern time, I am able to realize my contextual relationship to the rich pictorial tradition of food in the history of paintings as well as the position of my own artistic practice within such tradition. Expanding the various researches aforementioned, I attempt to outline the way in which people feel about and behave towards food by referencing a discourse of the social significance regarding to the type of food and the ritual of meals and, moreover, with my paintings, the association between the kinds of emotions and the activities of meals in a ritualistic dimension will be rendered visible by means of the aesthetic transformation of the Glue Color painting, so that the relational and societal dialogues between food and people, and the “intimate order” within human beings to each other can be represented and captured in my study.
