A Net of Eels - Jake Tilson and Kyoichi Tsuzuki

Date: 10 July - 23 August 2009
Venue: The Wapping Project, The Wapping Hydraulic Power Station, Wapping Wall, London E1W 3SG
Tel: 0207 680 2080

An exhibition of new work by British artist/writer/cook Jake Tilson and Japanese photographer/cultural commentator Kyoichi Tsuzuki, ‘A Net of Eels’ is a playful and evocative exploration of the complex cultural and culinary significance of the Eel in Japan and the UK.
Featuring a selection of photographic images, audio works and found objects drawn from historical contexts and everyday popular culture, the project combines Tilson's highly personal and eclectic approach to his subject (as seen in his celebrated narrative cookbook A Tale of 12 Kitchens, 2006) with Tzusuki's more anthropological observations (evident in his popular photographic publications Roadside Japan, 1996 and Tokyo Style, 1993). A Net of Eels is commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella in association with The Wapping Project.
