‘Dragon of the White’Guus Rijven

From September 19, 2020

Entrance: Free

 

This project aims to visually explore, summarise and bring into the present the memory of two centuries of unique collaboration in the fields of trade and knowledge with Japan through Deshima (Nagasaki). It consists of three dissimilar series, which complement one another passionately. The present is tied to the past, fact is tied to fiction.

The Dragon of the White inhabits the blank areas on the map. His habitat shifts through discovery or conquest. Cartographer, adventurer, trader, artist and photographer – they are each in search of the Dragon of the White. When the dragon is discovered, the traveller is home. What remains is imagination.
