Ecotone is a series of photographic collages, borrowing the ancestral technic of Kintsugi from Japanese craftsmen to celebrate perfection through imperfection, beauty and poetry within scars.
Each composition is made of fragmented and scared photographs, preciously held together through their golden borders.
These images bear the traces of their shared past, a performance by Morvarid K, Yuko Kaseki and Sherwood Chen, using photographs as raw material. Gorged with the essence of the performance and exalting the breach as generative, the photographs raise now the question of perception. What is seen as damaged and worthless by some, carries the irreplaceable imprint of a singular experience for others.
