Nelia Justo: My Pleasure is Your Tea
21 April – 19 May, 2001
My Pleasure is Your Tea is a series of works by Nelia Justo which explores the relationship between Eastern and Western cultures through an examination of historical trade ties between Europe and Asia in the 15th – 19th Centuries. By incorporating aspects of refined goods with mass produced electronic parts, Justo explores the cultural, sociological and economical repercussions created in trade between two cultural identities.
