Kintsugi is a traditional method of restoring ceramics and porcelain. Its feature is to emphasize the traces of wrinkles with gold or silver paint, instead of completely hiding them, thereby forming a kind of «golden scars»
This concept resonates with young Ukrainian art today, because artists focus on problems and traumas, instead of silencing them and masking them under a thick layer. Working in bomb shelters or in forced emigration, in a state of lack of materials and under the emotional pressure of news, they continue to reflect on one of the greatest tragedies of modern Europe.
We would love to see each of you to share the art that is our voice today.
