Fortune Flows: Aquarium Oriental. Bjorn Staps

Aquariums are a common fixture in numerous Chinese restaurants. For three years, Dutch photographer Bjorn Staps travelled around the Netherlands in search of this exotic tendency – one that adheres to the feng shui belief that the movement of fish through water stimulates energy flow for successful business and luck.

Nowadays, aquariums are slowly disappearing from Chinese restaurants, as many either go out of business or change into more trendy fusion, wok or sushi establishments. The book not only visually narrates aquariums as cultural phenomena, but also documents a typical cuisine that is slowly disappearing in the Netherlands, almost unnoticed.

This year we will again participate in the KunstRAI Art Amsterdam, which lasts from Thursday 18 to Monday 22 April – a day longer than usual (2nd Easter day)! You can find us at booth 24. We show work by four artists.

Roos Holleman will be represented with a special edition entitled An Inordinate Fondness, on the occasion of her book The Center of Attention, to be published in April. We’ll show a monumental painting plus a multiple of Jan Maarten Voskuil, in response to the publication in March of his monograph Round Trip. Robert Zandstra will be represented with a series of drawings in response to the leporello Stage of Being, which was published in September 2018. Finally we’ll show new paintings by Seet van Hout.
