Past Setouchi Triennial 2019: Learn about Setouchi culture through food
A special lunch produced by artist, EAT&ART TARO is served at Restaurant IARA Megijima, which also houses "The Presence of Absence" by Leandro Erlich (mg15-B). During this 30-minute lunch show, the dishes are prepared before your eyes, conveying the delicious food culture of the region. The result was a new style of restaurant where meals became a learning experience.
