Dresden. #illyArtCollection - Mended Cups by @YokoOno

Yoko Ono: mended cups, an illy Art Collection, consists of six cups that bear gold, ‘shattered’ and ‘mended’ crack lines – accompanied by six individual saucers that state, in Yoko Ono’s handwriting, six catastrophic events that have affected the world; some have directly affected her life, and others only indirectly, yet bringing death to millions of people. Each saucer states the date and place of the tragic event and concludes with the words “… mended in 2015.” . The seventh cup in the collection, UNBROKEN CUP , is untouched with no cracked or mended lines, reflecting peace and hope with Ono’s handwritten words on the saucer, "This cup will never be broken as it will be under your protection".
