Who is Makiko?
Makiko is a one-on-one Japanese Performance Artist based in Tokyo. She dedicated 10 years to studying and living in London. Her themes encompass femininity, intimacy, nature, life and death, and their intricate relationship with society. This room is an idea that creates a place where the audience can chat with each other passionately after witnessing a surprising performance art.
Here's a sneak peek into what's in there!
Step 1. Become a witness and share your thoughts!
There are three rooms where you can experience intimate one-to-one performances. Additionally, you'll find a lot of text about my thoughts and reading notes.
Step 2. Make "obscene and sacred" jokes and share them here!
Here, both audience members and I are crafting jokes!
We're provided with 'Makiko's step-by-step recipe' on 'how to create irreverent and profound jokes,' which we can then share here.
Furthermore, there's an introduction to the Booklet project, and the audience is invited to take part!
Incorporating 'obscene' jokes can be our remedy! (Not explicit, but sacred in nature.)
Creating 'obscene and sacred' jokes was inspired by the book 'Women Who Run With The Wolves.' In the book, it says:
***Obscene is not vulgar at all, but rather seems more like some fantastic nature creature that you dearly wish would visit you and be one of your best friends.***
***Sexual/sensual enchantment causes good emotional feelings, and it is our medicine.***
***The mischief and humor of the obscene Goddesses can provide a vital form of medicine that spreads throughout the endocrine and neurological systems of the body.***
