THE ORIENT, 13A Deptford High St, SE8 4AD

Curated by: Junsheng Zhou

The orient, a relatively geographic noun which suggests a mysterious, dangerous, exotic, and ambiguous world. And it is an ambiguous word that doesn't really tell where the place is. A landscape, is the visible features of an area of land. When one gives an invitation to tell someone to look at a landscape or a view, is an invitation not to look at any specific things, but ‘to ignore all particulars in favour of an appreciation of a total gestalt.’ It’s actually about how you see things.

In The Orient, you are invited to a trip to the East, you may come hypnotised by the exotic and dreamy waterfall landscape,  have a (perhaps more than one) delicious Chinese cuisine, or just purely enjoy the space of hospitality.
