Chen Jhen, “Amsterdam Lunch” and “Maastricht Dinner” (2019)
Artist Chen Jhen explores identity through food – or, more specifically, food culture. Chen has been studying how people in the Netherlands eat in an effort to epitomize the “Dutch life”. In her projects “Amsterdam Lunch” and “Maastricht Dinner”, shown at the Van Eyck Open Studios in March 2019, visitors were invited to watch an “Amsterdam Lunch” recreated through screens displaying a Taiwanese performer as he acted out a script created by Chen; she based the scenario on her notes documenting and observing how and what people in the Netherlands eat.
