Exclusively for the dinner of The Gallery Club Het Keramiekkantoor by Karen Knispel has designed Japanese Spring, a 126 piece tableware inspired by the Japanese cherry blossom with its promising colors. The cherry blossom only blooms for a few weeks in April and May. In Japan the blossom is a symbol for life itself: short and beautiful. Naturally, this porcelain tableware outlives us by far.

For this edition of The Gallery Club we’re joining forces with IBASHO, which means a place where you can be yourself in Japanese. IBASHO is a new gallery in Antwerp that opened her doors in March 2015, showing fine art Japanese photography ranging from works by well-known Japanese photographers to younger contemporary Japanese artists as well as works from Western photographers who were inspired by Japan.

The exhibition will not only focus on the ‘old masters’ of Japanese photography like Nobuyushi Araki, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Eikoh Hosoe, but will also show work by the new generation of very talented Japanese photographers. Some of them followed their education in Japan, others in the Western world. With this show we hope to give an insight in all the different styles that Japanese photography has to offer.
