Pierre Huyghe’s Aquarium Project – An Introduction to the works of Amano Takashi

Pierre Huyghe’s most recent work “Aquarium Project” presents a fascinating approach on how to showcase a form of cultural practice and its main protagonist whose fame and recognition, as of now, has not crossed the boarders of special interest.

Mostly known to aquarium lovers, Japanes designer and photographer Amano Takashi can be described as the key figure in the development of contemporary aqarium design. Taking Amano Takashi’s concept of “Nature Aquarium” as its point of departure, Pierre Huyghe’s “Aquarium Project” provides a fantastic introduction to the techniques and aesthetics which have been shaped and defined by Amano. Surprisingly the distributed press material shows no evidence of Amano’s influence on the Aquarium Project but a new publication will examine the relationship between Huyghe’s and Amanos working practice in greater detail.
