The Hidden Treasures of the North Sea

In 2015 the world renowned modern conceptual artist Danh Vo visited our warehouse in Urk with his team of collaborators and selected hundreds of kilograms of fossil material, including bones of Woolly Mammoths and whales. Vo, born in Vietnam in 1975, is interested in objects and other material, sometimes many thousands of years old, which he encounters through extensive travel and his unique network of connections. Vo arranges these objects in very original ways, which opens up new possibilities of seeing and interpretation. In this case he suspended our fossils from the ceiling of the Crystal Palace in the Parque del Retiro in Madrid, which was a spectacular sight and highly popular. The photos speak for themselves.
