"No Black, No Dogs, No Irish". The latest redisplay of the cases outside the ceramic studio(level 6) is a collection of ceramics portraying black people and dogs, which is an ugly example of historic discrimination. Through this object, our ceramic resident artist, Matt shows that what and who is considered important and what is socially acceptable alters as society changes.
Have a look Yiyun Kang's on-going project, 'Casting'. You could explore by yourself between the line tapes and the artificial projected light through this installation. What is real?
