Asako Iwama (born in Tokyo, Japan) is an artist and cook, who lives and works in Tokyo and Berlin. Asako Iwama’s practice has developed around the idea of the ontology of eating. Referring to the social aspects of eating as a metaphor of our relation to nature, Iwama seeks to transform the perception of nourishment, both aesthetically and epistemologically within her practice and work. From 2005 to 2014 she worked at Studio Olafur Eliasson in Berlin. She is founder of the collective group pop-up café.
