Intro

"Mes cicatrices Je suis d'elles, entièrement tissé".
"My scars, of them I am fully woven"
is a protocol for an artistic mediation from Hélène Gugenheim. 
It is a ritual, “magic”, gesture consisting of applying gold to a scar to demonstrate the mix of strength and fragility that makes us human. The heart of the protocol consists of the application of gold leaf to a scar. This action is modelled on the Japanese technique of kintsugi (golden joinery), the art of repairing broken pottery, especially bowls used in the tea ceremony. 

The exhibition will feature the films from the performances of Hélène Gugenheim and five in mirror-pieces by Stella Bierrenbach, Aude Medori, Camille Moncomble, Galatée Pestre and Sophie Robbe.
