Yoko Ono: Mend Piece

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

You are invited to engage with the participatory exhibition, "Yoko Ono: Mend Piece" (Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York City version), from the Rennie Collection, Vancouver. Ono proposes communal mending as an act of healing. Participants are asked to mend shattered fragments of cups and saucers together using common household items: twine, glue, scissors, and tape. The resulting works are displayed on nearby shelves, evidence of the power of collective action. "Mend Piece" embraces the metaphor of the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi, a technique of repairing broken or cracked pottery using brushstrokes of gold and silver, a philosophy that treats the breakage and repair as part of the object’s history - an important and precious detail, rather than something to disguise. This exhibition is organized by the American Federation of Arts (AFA). The presentation of Yoko Ono's "Mend Piece" is part of Art Room, an ongoing series of contemporary art installations organized by the AFA.
