Jacques Gies, former curator of France's Guimet Museum of Asian Art, pointed out the artistic importance of the exhibition.

"Dietary utensils are closely linked to the research of art history that I am working on. The materials, shapes and cultural connotations of these utensils can all be included into the scope of modern art creation."

The exhibition also features photos, documents and videos, creating an interactive experience zone where artists demonstrate techniques to make the utensils and add modern touches to the traditional ware.

The exhibition runs through May 24.
