MORE BEAUTY IN THE BROKEN
The Kintsugi collection emphasizes the beauty of the broken: when something is damaged, it makes it more beautiful.
In Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty. Aurelia Bizouard creates art with glass panels and reverse painting questioning the meaning of life. This japonese philosophy, where broken objects are often repaired with gold, explains that the flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty.
The use of glass - a transparent fragile matter - is like a metaphor for life, its fragility and its strength.
