|Author||Alain Kruger; Agnieszka Gratza; Thomas Schlesser|
|Status||out of print|
Born in Japan, Lei Saito has been based in Paris since 2003. Her interest in history, in narratives that are superimposed in layers, has led her to explore different techniques: photoengraving, sculpture, photography, installations, and drawing. This book focuses on her series of performances and culinary installations, the “Cuisine Existentielle”. Involving a complex set of references and meanings, and drawing from art history, mythology, and language, Saito’s compositions are a hybridisation between culinary traditions, eras, and flavours that form a new, interactive story. Texts by Alain Kruger, Agnieszka Gratza, and Thomas Schlesser complement this sensory existential journey.
