The 'floating world', a world adrift, primarily refers to the days of courtisane prints that were part of the Edo era. But floating worlds are also worlds of endeavour, of dreams and continuous change, and they imply 'otherness' and how to look at it, as well as casting a different eye at the familiar.
A source of inspiration for Floating Worlds is the so-called 'Hofreis', a journey from Dejima (Nagasaki) to the military rulers in Edo (Tokyo), undertaken annually from 1609 by successive Dutch commanders. Each commander paid his respects, offered gifts and informed the Shogun about developments in the Western world. These perilous journeys, which often took months and months, figure in several diaries and official reports. The exchange of information between Japanese and Dutch representatives proved to have a significant impact on science, art and culture.
The remembrance and celebration of 400 years of trade relations between Japan and the Netherlands call for this new, 21st-century Hofreis, now undertaken by Baars, Henneman and Yagi. Their artistic cooperation reflects a longstanding and fertile interchange between two entirely different worlds.
