Exhibition: Felix van de Beek, Vissen/Fische

April 30 to May 31, 1977. Felix van de Beek’s work was first exhibited in Germany in the exhibition Enkel des Stijl, held in the Neue Galerie in 1973. With the help of an aquarium, van de Beek triggers artistic processes, which he captures in photo series and films. His photos obey a serial logic: he fills a plexiglass box that has 49 small drawers with fighting fish, which try to attack one another. At first, the photos show just a few, then more and more, before the photo is almost black due to the density of fish. A 20-minute 16mm film accompanies the photos, demonstrating the movement of the fish until fatigue sets in.
