Foodscape We are what we eat
2016.10.21 - 2017.1.17
We are what we eat. As the old saying goes, food/eating makes the core component of our life, with providing some fun and joy to us. It also serves as the simplest and essential form of communication that connects us with family and society, with nature, with belief, with culture or memories. Impacted by the development of industry and technology, any food is now available in and out of season, which has significantly altered the relationship between individual and food. Seeing such relationship afresh, extending from our body and memories to natural environment or universe, is surely important at a time of extraordinary change. ”Foodscape” is to reflect on the future of food/eating through artistic expressions. This is in part third of the exhibition series dedicated to the subject of “everyday life”, following “Wardrobe Memories” (2014) and “Living Locally” (2015).Since 2013,Arts Maebashi has been carrying on a dining project Kaze no Shokudo :The Wind Restaurant to explore the current situation of regional food and agricultural culture with Fenrando Garcia Dory, Nanpushokudo and HOO. Landscape and food works. These artists also join the exhibition.
