The Knife was not designed to kill but to share























    I was invited to take part in a Korean art festival that is considering human rights and peace.
    I met with two elder women, mother and daughter (86 and 56)
    They taught me their family recipes for Kimchi. We cooked for several days in their house
    In return I made for their families food that is from my own tradition.
    I wrote a text that captured my vision on the status of a meal.
    the title -The knife was not designed to kill but to share- comes from this text
    For the festival I prepared the traditional Kimchi that was shared with the audience.
    The text was translated to Korean and written down on small papers that were given together with the food.
