Y.Hemma Sessions #2 Savouring

An encounter with food and visual creation at chef Yurie Hama’s home.

The combination of food and art can be a challenging and sometimes over-sophisticated and intimidating encounter, which often leaves no space for the genuine simple pleasure of experiencing something nice. This event is all about drawing this encounter back to an experience where taste – aesthetic and gustative – comes first, enhanced with the cosiness of being in the cook’s home.

A casual yet elaborate Japanese meal, inspired by the surrounding space and objects created by invited artists, will be shared among the guests along with traditional sake. The designed objects will be available for purchase giving the possibility to recreate the meal experience at home.

Collaborators:
Ivana Trump, Porcelain tableware
Izumi Sato, Cushion design
Kyuhyung Cho, Graphic

Y.Hemma Sessions #1 Taste

In collaboration with Underverk for Season 1 — Hemmet, Yurie Hama, owner of café Kikusen, starts her home sessions that consist of food experiences designed together with people from various fields. Yurie will be hosting the following two events at home:

A tea and food workshop that provides 3 steps of approaching new tastes.
The occasions when and where people drink tea in Japan are quite diverse. Beyond the regular afternoon brew, tea at home is served at every meal with different types and at different temperatures in order to harmonize with the rest of the meal.

This workshop is produced together with tea advisor Wataru Adachi from LYCKA Japan & Sweden, who presents the basics of Japanese tea, followed by a tasting that introduces possible approaches to combine tea and food. Three different samples of a Japanese home-made meal are combined with three different types of Japanese tea. The tea is provided by tea company Ippodo, well-known for its high quality Japanese green tea since 1717.

Re-Mex: 13 — 14 May

Underverk presents The Life of a Dress by textile designer Amanda Ericsson and Clean Graffiti by graffiti artist Moose developed during the Re-Mex project in Mexico City 2012. A project where 13 artists promoted creative solutions to the problems caused by consumption and the misuse of resources. Through a series of workshops, in collaboration with Mexican youth, using art and creativity they have reassessed the value of things to establish new ones in what has been regarded as waste or even a social problem.

This exhibition will show documentation from what evolved during that incredible time. We especially want to highlight textile designer Amanda Ericsson’s and graffiti artist Moose’s work. Come meet them next week at Parallell Gallery Hornstull, Stockholm.

The workshops took place in four different cultural centres in Mexico City known as Faros. Without exception each artist found the experience of working in these centres to be both massively rewarding and wholesome. During the year the attendees of the workshops began to embrace the different concepts and collaborate with the artists inspiring new directions and colour.

Moose – Clean Graffiti / Graffiti reversible
Paul Curtis from Northern England is known as “Moose”, he is a pioneer in new forms of graffiti and street-art. He works without paint and without polluting. Moose inverts the “graffiti” process by creating large-scale murals that use images taken from nature by removing dirt and pollution from walls often using rainwater under pressure. What remains is a kind of negative, a large-scale piece of green-art.
