I learned about the work of Ozawa Tsuyoshi while at the Mori. He was not currently showing there, but he had an exhibition there a few years back. A lot of his work seems to be a demonstration more than actual artwork. Normally, I would not look at that type of work twice, but his “food gun” work is pretty amazing. Plus, the reasoning behind it is very intelligent. All of these woman are holding vegetables that help to make a traditional dish. After the gun is constructed and the picture is taken, the vegetables are used to cook the dish for everyone to share. Also, the use of vegetables as weapons gives a unique spin on the use of guns and how their use in our world is utterly ridiculous.
