La Maison Kintsugi, founded by artist Garth Bowden, embodies a vision of life infused with art. This residency offers a space where creativity, playfulness, contemplation, and exchange are equally cherished, emphasizing a balance between individual practice and collective conversation. The term ‘Kintsugi,’ derived from Japanese (‘Kin’ for gold and ‘Tsugi’ for join), literally translates to ‘to join with gold.’ Symbolizing resilience and transformation, it sets the tone for the residency’s ethos. La Maison Kintsugi provides a tranquil atmosphere for artists to concentrate on their work, research, or writing.
