Celebrating emerging contemporary artists and craftspeople from Japan, this exhibition showcases artists who transform traditional Japanese aesthetics, values, techniques, and materials in unique and experimental ways. These works strike the balance between bold and powerful forms whilst exuding a sense of calm. Seijaku is a key principle in Japanese aesthetics. The term has a flexible definition, centring around the values of tranquillity and calm, still and solitude, all emitted amid activity. Seijaku exists as an element of the works present in the exhibition amongst an embracing of all elements of Japanese aesthetics, which come together to reflect the calm.
