Unbroken – Human Kintsugi Project
“Unbroken” is a unique and empowering body art/documentary project celebrating Australians who have found greater strength within themselves following personal hardship or challenge, addressing issues such as trauma, sexuality, disability, mental illness, asylum seeking and displacement, and sexual assault.
The project is inspired by Kintsugi, a Japanese art form that uses gold to enhance broken ceramic in a way that accentuates the cracks, a symbol of the beauty to be found in imperfection and impermanence. In this project the participants are documented through the body painting process sharing their stories. The final outcome will be a photo exhibition, a photo book featuring the stories of each participant as well as a series of short video documentaries. Despite their hardships and challenges, these participants remain unbroken.
