ZHOU Tiehai started the cooperation on The Desserts with a French friend in 2006, and by now, 5 series have been completed. They are Le Diplomate, Le Juge, Le Ministre, Le Sabotajnik, and La Caroleuse. Several articles were written by the French writer, which discussed the evolution of the desserts, dissecting the insinuation of their names. Meanwhile, the artists transformed the articles into hundreds of paintings which were collected from the Internet, corresponding to the personages, the allusions, the ingredients which were referenced in the articles.
Le Juge, covered by chocolate, is made of a biscuit base, a layer of chocolate mousse, and at the top of which is currant jam. Like the other desserts, Le Juge plays the paronomasia, for example, the biscuit means bribe in French slant, and in the old time, the nobility and the Bourgeoisie would give the expensive currant jam as a gift for the judge when they won a lawsuit, in this case, the currant jam also stands for bribe.
