Tatsumi ORIMOTO: Performance of “Bread Men”

Bread and wine are recognized as symbols of Jesus’s body and blood as shown in the painting of Last Supper. He gave his adherents a piece of bread by telling them “This is my body.” I felt as bread was Western culture and hit upon a good idea to represent a part of my body by putting it on own head. When I did the performance in Europe, sometimes I was asked “How about rice?” as I’m a Japanese. Rice is also God for Japanese. So I don’t use it. That’s why I being not Westerner can do the performance of ”Bread Men”.

Tatsumo ORIMOTO: Performance of Lunch with Fifty Grandmothers

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!!”
I 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”.
