KINTSUGI


2014

5 min, sound, HD video

Scars are links to the events that caused them.
Very often these events are traumatic.
Kintsugi, which means "golden joinery", is the japanese technique of mending broken ceramics with gold filled resin.
Every repaired ceramics has a unique and irreplicable pattern of golden lines due to randomness of the crushing.
This technique has its roots in the belief that the object is more valuable and beautiful with its history revealed.
Bodies also tell us their story. Some of them say it loud.


Kintsugi is one of the chapters of DROP.
