MOMENT OF PEACE AND SERENITY AT THE MUSEE GUIMET

 

 

 

The MUSEE GUIMET is the perfect place to find some serenity and some beauty; not only from the works exposed but by the way each sculpture or object is placed.

The role of a museum is to offer hospitality to its works as much as to its visitors; this is especially so on the case of in Asian art, where it is the spacing, the blank spaces in-between, that irrigate the subject itself.

And, as in painting, it is emptiness that brings a subject to life, falling into streams, winding itself into the trees and gathering under the mountain cloud. So hollow and loose is the very figure of alternation between full and empty, that it is impossible to pay too much attention to passages, openings and the relationship between exhibited objects.
