Room 1

Golden Flaws
Mariko Hori

“Through COVID-19 pandemic, many of us might have finally realised that human beings are not able to control everything. We are only one of the members sharing this planet and in need of accepting many things which are beyond our expectation. Our way of living would need some changes to co-exist with all the other subjects in this universe.

First of all, we didn’t have to control the natural phenomenon nor we didn’t have to aim for perfection all the time. As a failure or heartbreaking experience could mellow one’s character, accepting being imperfect could make you more thoughtful. 

This work is to practice to accept the way things are being and try not to control. By experience the philosophy of kintsugi which embrace the flawed or imperfect. “
