Lei Saito: Cuisine Existentielle

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.
