Over one hundred works by national and international artists will present the Japanese aesthetic concept of wabi-sabi, in which the beauty of imperfection and transience play a central role.
Using photography and ceramics this resplendence becomes visible and the beauty of imperfection is underscored. A photo of melting snow pressed onto hand-made paper or a simple asymmetrical teacup with a crack in the glaze, serve to illustrate this concept.
In an age where everything must be better, faster and more appealing, this exhibition is a haven for rest, self-reflection and a personal encounter with the Japanese feeling of wabi-sabi.
A varied activities programme will accompany this exhibition and an illustrated catalogue will be on sale in the museum shop.
