About the exhibition:
With the exhibition "Witte Goud" Jun Zhang researches the transformation of identity in the history of the salt shaker from sacred object to functional vessel. This transformation process critically reﬂect on a series of global ecological and climate crises caused by the de-enchantment process after scientiﬁc revolution in which feeling and imaginal was denigrated
"Witte Goud" tries to combine the craft of salt shaker in West with the salt god belief in East, and re-sanctiﬁes the salt shaker through a series of installations and rituals, thus exploring the salt pot as a sacred object to establish a connection between human and God (nature). In this process of reconstructing the sanctity, "Witte Goud" seeks to go beyond the anthropocentric view of seeing natural as inert matter awaiting human exploitation and appropriation, instead it tries to see natural material as a medium that participates in the communication between man and God (nature)
