Inspired by the millenial kintsugi technique, this photograph represents the fragility of the human body, covering it with the traditional patterns of ancient Chinese porcelain and coating the broken pieces with gold.

This gold emerges from the mask and spreads through the body, drawing lungs with its cracks. With this, it is implied that the mask protects our respiratory system to face the current threat that coronavirus represents.

Lídia Vives (1991, Spain) I'm a fine art, fashion and commercial photographer currently based in Barcelona. Represented by Fifty Dots Agency in Barcelona, also the gallery with the same name, apart from Saisho Gallery (Madrid), Inqubator’s Art Gallery (Australia), Espai Cavallers and Léucade (Spain).
