Notice on the Opening of the Special Exhibition
“Reflections on Form – On the Beauty of Creation”

2014-05-19

   In June, the JP Tower Museum INTERMEDIATHEQUE (IMT) is opening the special exhibition “Reflections on Form – On the Beauty of Creation.”
   The present exhibition aims to focus on the form that things all possess and compare two movements on forms, reproducing nature and abstraction.
   The evaluation of form is physiological – rather than psychological as in the evaluation of beauty – and we can say that it has some kind of universality. That is because given properties – such as symmetry, closed systems such as the circle and the ring, the sense of rhythm created by the recurrence of identical motifs, or regular repetition – repeatedly appear at any era. Among things which have been transmitted through the ages, many possess a good form, the evaluation of which differs subtly from a psychological impression.
   The present exhibition features things created by man, such as statues and devices, together with things generated by nature like shells and starfishes. We thereby provide an occasion to reflect upon things which are perceived as beautiful, and their good form sustaining such a perception.
