About this installation

Christina was invited to do a residency in the Italian mountain village Preci struck by earthquake some years earlier. Habitations were destroyed and the population demotivated. A large building in the centre of the village was still standing but displaying a large crack in the facade. Inspired by Kin Tsugi, the crack was repaired with Urushi and gold-coloured powder. Community work, durational performance and intervention. Invitation and collaboration with artist group Corale, Leonardo Delogu, Teatro Stabile, Umbria.
