Japanese artist Tatsumi Orimoto has an exhibition at A Foundation documenting his long career as a perfomance artist and while he was here last week for the opening he did two performances. On Saturday he orchestrated a feast for 50 local Grandmamas and on Sunday he walked through the city centre as Bread Man. The reactions of people as he walked along handing out free bread and ringing a small bell was quite interesting. He has performed as Bread Man all over the world and gets different reactions everywhere.
