This thesis is based on a project entitled KÍNTSÜGÍ. The collection of textile installations and sculptures has its origin in the Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi and Prekmurje pottery. The title of the collection was created with the help of a vowel alternation in the word KINTSUGI, which ultimately gives it a touch of the Prekmurje dialect. In today’s society, priority is given to beauty, perfection, youth, and material goods. Each incomplete, used material is quickly discarded, overlooked, or even considered a flaw. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken earthenware products with gold or silver-coloured lacquer. During the repairing process, the aim is not to hide the flaws, but to strongly and in a beautiful way emphasize the broken lines. Kintsugi belongs to the Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi which seeks beauty in the imperfections of nature in all its aspects. It is the aesthetics of existing things that are imperfect, inconstant, and unfinished. The Japanese culture was combined with region of birth – Prekmurje, in particular Prekmurje pottery. Pottery is considered as one of the oldest crafts in Slovenia and it used to represent the most common local activity. The most well-known product of the Prekmurje potters is the black firing pot - Pütra. Old, discarded pieces of the Prekmurje earthenware and worn nylon tights are used for the formation of the textile sculpture collection and through embroidery these pieces create a new object. Embroidery is a manual technique which is very valuable, for it demands a lot of time and attention. Metallized silver and black threads illustrate lacquer, which is used in the Kintsugi technique and, at the same time, give the product additional value. Worn or torn nylon tights are used during installation as well. Brown-coloured installation and black-grey sculptures represent the typical colours of the traditional Prekmurje pottery. The aim of this assignment is to give discarded materials a new chance. The created collection is a fusion of the Japanese culture and the cultural heritage of Prekmurje. The main message for the viewer is to embrace their own fragility, flaws, imperfections, and the inconstancy of life. The result of the thesis is the collection of textile installations and sculptures, which was presented in an exhibition and through photographs and video.
