I lived with and supported my mother for 21 years until she died.I cook every meal every day.
It’s important to have meals with family and it is nothing but love. At the one of occasions during the invitation trips to Hungary, Poland or to
Europe, I finished my work at 5pm and cooked a dinner. As I’m good a cooker, many young artists gathered around me to have my dinner. I realized that the dinner time was a communication with them and came to the thought that “This could be an ART!!
To have a meal together is an ART!!”
invited thirty grandmothers to the lunch at the Kawasaki Art Museum, who were from my neighbors. On the occasion, I said to myself that to have a lunch with grandmothers anywhere in the world was an ART. I have done this performance of “Lunch with
Grandmothers” in Kawasaki, Brazil, Portugal, Liverpool and Denmark. The next one is Folkestone, UK and Ikuchi island in Onomichi this year. It’s an Art of Communication and Mind”.
