The Western New York Book Arts Center (WNYBAC) presents Mogu Mogu ~ Munch Munch, an exhibition by Harumo Sato, on view from March 25 through April 29, 2016. The exhibition features Harumo Sato’s illustrations in the form of screen prints and life size stickers. In this exhibition Sato asks the audience to rediscover their essential relationship with food. Throughout the exhibit Sato references Japanese mythology about the harvest goddess, Ogetsuhime, who kindly serves food that magically comes from all orifices: her eyes, her ears, her nose, her vagina, and her anus. She invites the viewer on a tasty journey of humanity and life with humor ~ Bon appétit!
