a contemporary jewelry series adopting the imagery of food, such as chicken, bananas, eggs, watermelons, and steamed buns. In HE+HU's world, while jewelry addresses the human body from the outside, food “approaches people from within”. Jewelry and food are two different aspects of showing who we are, and it was this notion that helped us make this connection [between food and jewels] that challenges the traditional production of jewelry.
In this case, viewers are invited to put on the duo’s ‘delicious’ pieces and play with them. The inspiration for the series stems from a long-lasting custom in the northern parts of China, where parents surround a newborn with necklace-shaped steamed buns that carry good wishes.
