There is a dog. When he sees his tail, he spins around chasing it. He sees with the eyes, and has forgot to smell to know the world.But then someone brings him something, to his nose. He realizes his sense of smell again, and stops chasing his tail.

If we realize our instinct, we can fly.

Shen_Shen_Books_Motto_Berlin_2015

Two independent publishers from Taiwan, Shen Shen Books and nos:books, have arrived in Berlin to showcase their exceptional works and publications at “The Calabash Show”, to take place at Motto Berlin from July 31 to August 30.

At The Calabash Show, the two publishers come to Berlin together with several of their artists. The show takes inspiration from an ancient mythical story about people entering the calabash for one day for spiritual practice. They left the calabash after many ordeals, without achieving immortality. When returned to the real world, one year had passed. At Motto Berlin,  the two mortal publishers and their artists present their latest works and publications, and share their thoughts behind the many ordeals of art and publishing.

Participating artists include Chihoi, Eva Lin, Ling Yu Tai, Pei Yu Shen, Son Ni and Ting Cheng. Come and meet them in person at the opening on July 31 at 6pm-9pm at Motto Berlin. The show is supported by the National Culture and Arts Foundation, Taiwan, and The Arts Development Fund of the Home Affairs Bureau, the Government of Hong Kong SAR.
