Have you Eaten Yet? by Sophie Teh

February 17 @ 6:00 pm - March 12 @ 10:00 pm

Sophie Teh art exhibition barcelona

Sophie Teh invites visitors to experience a world of implied meanings and suggestion through  their interactions with food, specifically foods that were significant to the artist growing up in a  Chinese Malaysian family in the 1980s. Food is a cornerstone to Chinese culture. “Have you eaten  yet?” was the colloquial greeting in the community she grew up in instead of ‘How are you?’ 

The artist’s work deals with abstract and figurative themes. Her work references her cultural background and explores how cultural conditioning and personal memories influence how we perceive and react to visual stimuli. As part of Teh’s artistic investigation, she paints from personal experiences. Drawing from the ‘otherness’ of her Malaysian Chinese roots, Teh’s work mines this cultural tension to generate work that challenges racial and cultural stereotypes.

In conjunction with the Chinese New Year, Mutuo Centro de Arte presents ‘’Have You Eaten Yet?’,  a solo exhibition by artist Sophie Teh. The exhibition of new paintings and installations runs from  17 Feb to 12 Mar 2022.
