The Hairy Crabs of the Yangcheng Lake are famed as an autumn delicacy in Shanghai for the golden roe of the females and the voluptuous semen of the males tucked in the shells, alongside white silken flesh hidden between the body, legs and slaws. The fresher the crab, the sweeter and more robust the meat. The artist recalls years where the crabs were hand peeled for her by family members. She now returns the favour for each individual, atoning in a strictly Chinese way for indebted labour.
