Edo Sanpu 2020
An exhibition about mutual perception in the Netherlands and Japan.
From the 8th-10th of January Stichting Berg & van Dalen presents the Exhibition Edo Sanpu 2020 at Zone2Source (Het Glazen Huis) located in the Amstelpark, Amsterdam.
Inspired by their experience travelling through Japan and meetings they had along the way, artists Hannie van den Bergh and Jan van den Bergh created a series of artworks about the mutual image in the Netherlands and Japan, in the past and present.
With the slogan Let’s play, Let’s eat, Let’s see, Let’s meet the artworks of Edo Sanpu 2020 depict the intercultural dialogue between two cultures that differ as much as they seem connected.
Let’s play Karuta: A Japanese-Dutch card game made with traditional Japanese woodcarving and western letterpress.
Let’s eat Noripan: A community art project about food and table manners (seaweed, bread & dough products)
Let’s see Performance of Nature: a video installation about looking at, understanding and dealing with ‘’nature’’ in the East and West
Let’s meet Exformatie: A book about meetings and collaborations between Dutch and Japanese artists.
The book Exformation will be for sale during the Exhibition.
