Zen-in-Ten Bathroom was one of Karen Tam's Pagoda Pads installations created during her residency at the Centre.
The small installations explored Western notions of China and representations of Chinese culture in current popular culture. The spaces were decorated with 'must-have' furnishings presenting a critical view of stereotype in objects used in interior designs. For the installation, the artist redecorated a bathroom in a residential home in Mile Platting, Manchester. The design implemented stereotypical elements related to relaxation, including bamboo groves and Japanese rock gardens. The bathroom was open to visitor between 8th-11 February.
