Dumpling Boy Temple is a pseudo-shaman space on steroids where the kitsch-o-meter is set to full on.

Dumpling Boy Temple is an art installation space which provides a unique, kitsch shamanistic experience. The temple space will take inspiration from shamanism cultures in contemporary Asia, with a mix of traditions and symbols combined with manufactured objects.

Members of the public can enter the space, inspect the objects and pray to the Dumpling Boy for their good luck. Audiences can also take temple tours by UB (Youbi Lee), who will be adorned in quirky Asian shamanic costume and interact with members of public in a performative manner. This will be an accessible and family friendly space, where a mix of traditions and symbols combine with manufactured objects and kitsch cultures in contemporary Asia.

Installation/performance: UB (Youbi Lee)

Performance Times: 6–8 Dec 2018, 2–6pm

Wheelchair accessible venue.
