PopUpTearoom @ Multicultural Arts Victoria AuthenticiTEA/DeformiTEA

Through the fellowship from Australia Council, this was the first experimental process of Yumi's pop-up tearoom series, collaborating with a visual artist Riza Manalo. The audiences were invited to experience tearoom in an atypical office setting of Multicultural Arts Victoria.

Inspired by the Japanese notion of ‘ma’ (space) and rituals of tea ceremony, visitors are invited to harness the simple rituals in silence and embrace deeper narratives in an atypical office setting.
