The White House China is a book of photographic and mixed media reconstructions based on the collection of dinnerware at the presidential residence in Washington, DC. Aiming to correct certain historical omissions, Kathleen Y. Clark investigates the iconography and incongruity of an America established through violent conquest yet framed by elegant theory and language. Inspired by early political illustrators who used their explosive imagery to reveal the injustice behind the country’s facade of equality, these re-creations look at presidential contradictions and pivotal judgements made throughout the nation’s history. The White House China shines a light on often-destructive events which happened by decision or neglect within each administration, providing a stark contrast to the assumption of civilization and culture set around historic dining tables.
