MONO NO AWARE

January 23 - March 12, 2016
 

"Mono no aware" is a Japanese term used to describe an awareness of the passing moments of

life. In his images, Kusters captures these moments as a feeling, a memory, a state of

consciousness. Like when you're driving and the sun sets over the vast fields around you and the

music's just right and the warm wind in your hair and your friends next to you and conversations go

quiet and the long winding road ahead and your mind goes blank and you find yourself staring into

the distance and then you snap out of it, everyone knowing you've all had – but can't keep – that

moment that just passed.

There are many more examples of these kind of moments... We all know them. But we never know

when they pop up. They stop time for us for just a second... and then we know we must move on.

Kusters worked on these series between 2009 and 2013, and is showing now the series in its

totality.
