From 5 from June to 30 in September, JAPAN HOUSE São Paulo hosts the exhibition #AromaseSabores. Playful, interactive and didactic, the show proposes a tour of the diversity of smells and tastes in an immersion in Japanese culture through sensorial bias. The format of the exhibition allows the visitor to learn through practical experiences, conceptual, scientific or artistic elucidations, to answer questions such as: what are the basic tastes (sweet, bitter, sour, salty and umami, the latter discovered in Japan) and how Does the human body identify them? How does smell contribute to the construction of taste? And the perfume, deodorant, soap? How do these fragrances form and how were they obtained?
All of these issues are unraveled over the exposure divided into 3 steps: Identification, Construction and Sensory. To help tell this story, the show features the installation Maze UFO 4 - Discovering the Cherry Blossoms by Japanese artist Maki Ueda. The work induces the visitor to walk a certain path, guided by smell and thus find the smell of sakuras, trees with cherry blossoms.
Held by JAPAN HOUSE São Paulo and curated by Felipe Ribenboim, Aromas and Flavors will work on the universe of fragrances and smells building through elements characteristic of Japan, such as wasabi, shoyu and bamboo, as well as other foods, drinks, perfumes and incense. Immersion in Japanese palates will be complemented by a blind tasting of jelly candies with Japanese grape flavor, melon, wasabi, shoyu and strawberry, flavors developed exclusively by Takasago, home of aromas and fragrances.
