Traditional Japanese tea ceremony in a pitch dark room. On selected Saturdays.


Participatory performance where a Japanese tea ceremony master entertains up to two visitors at a session in a small pitch black room, complete with the traditional tea ceremony paraphernalia  including tea bowls, a wall hanging scroll and flower arrangement.  One sessions lasts for around 15 minutes.  Authentic Japanese maccha tea and sweets served. Contact gallery for confirmation: press@yamamotokeiko.com   The artist will post a formal hand-written invitation to those whose participation is confirmed. The performance is part of the gallery’s solo exhibition of Yoi Kawakubo, ‘I/body/ghost’ centred around the theme of non-physicality of phenomena.  The visitors are invited to reflect over the value of art works (tea bowls, etc.) : do the values stay the same even when they are not visible?  It is also an introduction to an other-worldly experience with enhanced senses of touch, taste, hearing as well as deformed sense of time. www.yamamotokeiko.com
