“A fertile terrain for investigation, Japanese culture never ceases to fascinate in its specificity. Wabi-sabi is the very essence of Japanese beauty, and  concept that illustrates key notions in Japanese aesthetics: wabi represents the notion of refinement through simplicity, while sabi explores the process of weathering over time. The exhibition Wabi Sabi Shima offers a journey into the heart of a culture that celebrates nature, simplicity, and the perfection of imperfection without eschewing politics, collective memory, terrestrial violence, or the realities of the present day.” (Nathalie Guiot & Philippe Terrier-Hermann)
