Saturday November 26th 2pm - 4pm at Collage Collage 3697 Main Street
Shako Cup is an artist edition/unconventional publication for Cindy Mochizuki’s project Shako Club, produced in collaboration with Tonari Gumi — a long-standing organization serving primarily Japanese-language speaking elders — in the summer of 2015. Drawing from the project’s focus on food, wellness and the social life of the kitchen, Shako Cup serves as both a publication and an object for flavourful contemplation. Custom-designed by Mochizuki and ceramicist Maggie Boyd, the edition is accompanied by a text by award-winning
author Hiromi Goto and a unique tasseography (tea leaf reading) map, created in collaboration with members of Tonari Gumi. Inspired by intergenerational exchange, Shako Cup encourages a host of ways to pass time, tell stories and imagine possible futures.
The cup is produced in a limited edition of 150, and will be available at select venues and in our online store.
The launch event will include a reading from Hiromi Goto’s essay. Tea and snacks will be served.
