Sometimes life flows seamlessly from one perfect moment to the next, but often times we face struggles, insecurities and setbacks that leave us broken. And we wonder what will become of the pieces.
We live in a world today that sees broken things as unworthy of our time, unwanted interference in our lives. The art of repair something and in the process making it more beautiful tells us that it is fine to have flaws. This aspect involves the urge to express the profound esteem felt for rejected, forgotten objects to give them the status of exclusivity and nobility.
The series ”Golden Scars” came as inspiration from Kintsukuroi, Japanese art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. I want to stimulate viewers to think, to make their own interpretations and associations. About who and what we are and why we act the way we do. I have been working on this series using an aluminium plates from the skip and photographing my subjects by 80 years old Eastman Kodak large format camera, wet plate collodion Tintype process.
