Studio Lunches was an autonomous podcast project by Chris MacInnes, supported by CCA. Its goal was to open up artists’ practices within Glasgow through conversation, exploring the diverse, obscure and intriguing interests that reside at the heart of this. This week I chatted to Katherine Ka Yi Liu about what she’s been working on recently. Katherine has a long-standing interest in language and identity and the mutations they have been subjected to under colonialism. We talk about how the Chinese language, her life in Hong-Kong, Chinese-British mashup meals and the colonial past of the city. Through anecdotal experience Katherine talks me through the changes in her cultural history and helps trace a path to the pressures of assimilation and cultural erasure written into globalisation.
