This striking convex lens blurs the viewer’s vision by using a lens that has been cut and then reconstructed to recreate a fragmented landscape, multiplying the number of viewpoints, and clouding all sense of linearity. The lens, cut into small pieces, is put back together using the kintsugi technique, with lacquer. ‘Kintsugi involves repairing a broken object using urushi lacquer as an adhesive, and by marking the fracture line with powdered gold’. This lens, placed in front of a bouquet of flowers, gives a new dimension to this rustic installation, whereby the petals appear gigantic, as if placed under a magnifying glass, and the vases are fragmented in the manner of a kaleidoscope. The aim of the piece is to offer a modern vision of a 17th-century flower painting.
