"The scars of life"
Symbols for a hymn to resilience and a tribute to a woman, her mother. For her first exhibition in France, Laetitia Ricci presents her new
artistic work "The scars of life". Images of an intense black and white that shows us with power and determination the importance of inner strength and how the support can overcome these wounds that everyone carries without them being visible. On some of the works on display, Laetitia used the philosophy of Japanese kintsugi art, using torn photo elements.
Creation process by Laetitia Ricci
This exhibition is a personal and artistic way of expressing all my gratitude for my mother, her exemplary nature as a woman and for showing me through her life course strewn with obstacles that we can draw from within ourselves a strength to overcome them. And deliver a hopeful message: "That we can turn our wounds into gold, as the ancient Japanese art, kintsugi demonstrates." Cherish your wounds, they show you how far you've come. Hope to meet you Laetitia Ricci
