FUKAMI –une plongée dans l’esthétique japonaise

Tradition vs. modernization, chaos vs. order, eternity vs. a single moment: the potential for co-existence and mutual growth as posed by “Japanese aesthetics”

This exhibition at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild in the heart of Paris portrays Japanese aesthetics by displaying traditional works with corresponding contemporary works of art. Jomon earthenware and a sculptural dress by ANREALAGE inspired by it are a perfect example of harmony between different art forms that also transcends time. They both express a shared vitality that is one of the characteristics ofJaponismes 2018 Japanese aesthetics. The exhibition will present a variety of works, including painting, installation, photography, fashion , sculpture, etc., on themes such as “primitivism,” “hybridity,” “aesthetics of subtraction – minimalism,” “transformation of materials – alchemy,” “philosophy of lightness,” “rebirth – repetitive regeneration” and “change – the expression of life” to stimulate a new perspective and understanding of Japanese aesthetics, which unites tradition and innovation. The catalogue with exhibition views will be published in February 2019.
