TATSUMI ORIMOTO

Until recently Japanese performance artist Tastumi Orimoto refused to sell his work, but things and people change for a number of reasons. With his mother acting as inspiration and muse, Orimoto speaks of how care for his mama reflects on his serious/humorous life-work and why tying baguettes to his face is both a challenge & admiration for European culture.
