performative dinner
at Galerie Les Ateliers de Paris

The dinner narration evokes the poetical process of lacquer (urushi), and focuses especially on the first and last step of it : the extraction of sap, and the painting.
After lacquering the long table with edible lacquer, food is put on it, reflecting in the liquid. The longer the dinner goes on, the laquer becomes a writing page, as we can see more and more prints from the dinner that is happening.
