Golden Repair for Our Planet, 2019

The Japanese have a philosophy, Kintsukuroi, often symbolized by a broken tea cup repaired with gold highlighting the cracks, making a new, beautiful artifact, yet honouring it’s fractured history.

Lead by Leslie Leong, with artists Donald Watt, Jo McCarthy, Martha Ritchie & Linda Leon enact golden repair on our environment. Watch the 3-minute video.

This work is part of Micro Galleries Disrupting Climate Disruption: Global Day of Creative Action. Inspired by Adam Kuby and Shohei Katayama work in The Arctic.
