“Kintsugi – riparare con l’oro” is a self-portrait project. It is about celebrating the battles the soul has come through, accepting and honoring the scars that testify to how it has been shattered and has come together as more complete and precious.
The title is borrowed from the ancient Japanese technique of repairing
porcelain vessels accentuating the cracks with gold instead of
Gold foil is applied by hand at the end of the printing process.
“Kintsugi” is part of a wider ongoing project on rebirth called
“Rinascimenti Privati”, that could be translated as “Private
Renaissances”. In Italian Rinascimento means both “rebirth” and the
Renaissance, an era that witnessed the flourishing of the arts and
intellectual activities after the Middle Ages.
