SHINE AGAIN is a work on the domestic abuse. More specifically, about the victims’ awareness of this subjugation, followed by the decision to free themselves and rebuild a new life.
I used Kintsugi, an ancient Japanese technique that embellished the cracks of a broken and re-worked object with gold powder.
“Repaired, consolidated, embellished, the object proudly wears its wounds, and paradoxically the more it has been broken, the more precious it becomes…” (Céline Santini, “Kintsugi, l'art de la résilience”).
Over time, it became a philosophy of life: to heal from wounds and learn to live with their scars.
We too can Shine Again after overcoming our trials.
