In Praise of Waves - Japanese culture as source of inspiration today
ArtistsPRINT THIS PAGE
In Praise of Waves explores the many ways in which Japanese culture is a source of inspiration in contemporary art today. A series of installations, performances, videos and graphic work gives a broad overview of the different horizons that artists with Japanese roots or fascinations are discovering. Across it all meanders the form of the wave, symbolizing a deep cyclical awareness that connects rise and fall, winter and summer in one continuous flow.
