Buzzcut 2016: Kintsukuroi (golden seams)

Kintsukuroi Golden Seams - Hellen Burrough

I will be performing this new durational work at Buzzcut 2016 in Glasgow. The festival runs from 6-10 April and takes place at the Pearce Institute, Govan.

“Kintsukuroi (Japanese: golden repair) is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. […] As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.”

Working with gold leaf and exploring the story of scars marking my body. Honouring and armouring these healed wounds.

THUR 7 APRIL, 7pm – 10pm
