Billie Bond at 33 Davies Street

33 Davies Street welcomes Billie Bond and her spectacular work inspired by ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi, repairing broken ceramics with lacquer mixed with powdered bronze. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

‘My work is concerned with identity and a personal obsession of revealing the concealed, exposing the discarded and the overlooked, repairing the broken and exploring ideas of duality. 
I try to translate an inner being through a disrupted surface, creating new and different visual conversations. Processes of destruction and repair investigate aspects of trauma and healing, rejuvenation and change. ‘
