Summary
A multi-sensory work inspired by okonomiyaki, a fried pancake which is a staple of Japanese cuisine. Tawada's text explores misconceptions about Japanese culture, while Schäpers's illustrations present her interpretation of sauce patterns that are created by the various sauces which are traditionally poured on the pancake in preparation for eating. The two additional leaves contain Japanese calligraphy similar to signs hung outside restaurants in which okonomiyaki is served. Their paper portfolio emits an odor evocative of an okonomiyaki restaurant. Cf. Artist's description
