Premiere Screening and Salt Tasting
at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden
Saturday 31 May, 2:00pm – 3:45pm
In August 2013, Vancouver artist Randy Lee Cutler hosted a series of performative walks through Chinatown exploring the enduring relationship that civilizations have had with salt. Each walk began with a salt tasting and discussion of its formative role in social history from China and India to Timbuktu. Meandering through the neighbourhood, Cutler hosted local shopkeepers and guests to speak about different aspects of sodium chloride whether as a flavour, a remedy or a molecular formation. With support from the BC Arts Council, Access has commissioned Cutler to produce new video work documenting the experience of these original walks. Join us at the Sun Yat-Sen Garden on Saturday, 31 May for the premiere screening of this new work followed by a salt tasting led by Cutler.
