Salon archive


The ancient origin of ceremonies between seasons is believed to bring the world of the living and dead closer together. Salon mimi organizes an artistic dinner event four times a year: during 'equinox', 'bon' after summer solstic and 'New Year'. These special times of transition are being differentiated from the everyday with rituals. Celebrating recurring events of the year with particular foods is a very important part of Japanese tradition. Through the dinner ceremonies we have the opportunity to gain awareness of the corporal and ephemeral nature of our physical presence as well as the seasons.
