Join us for a “Meet the Artist” talk and Q&A session at the Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach featuring Claudia La Bianca of Miami.
She is the artist behind a new installation inside the museum - “Kintsugi: The Art of Healing,” which made its debut at Burning Man 2022 and will be on display at the Cornell Art Museum as part of the Art Immersive exhibition through January 21, 2024.
Come "Meet the Artist" during First Friday Art Walk on Friday, October 6th from 6pm - 9pm. La Bianca will speak at 7pm, followed by a Q & A session at the museum.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer powdered gold. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as an art form. A repaired piece shows the scars and history of an object, highlighting what it has survived and overcome rather than disguising a presumed flaw.
The Kintsugi installation is comprised of a large rotating Broken Heart Sculpture with gold-colored fissures surrounded by Whimsical Trees and heart shapes containing messages from a spiritual world, the Universe.
