Born in Paris 1988, Youri is a self-taught visual artist who lives and works in Berlin. He had to face an extremely challenging childhood from which his main artistic theme was born: Reparation & Linkage.
Tikkun is a series about repair under the prism of the Kabbalah.
The main idea of the “tikkun olam” is that the World can only improve and reach perfection after a great break. This is why Youri assembles the frame, stretches the canvas, cuts it in order to release the tension, and then repairs it.
The preparation of the canvas is major: once the tension is applied, Youri lacerates it in different places, releasing the tension and destroying the canvas in a single movement. After these passages, the reparation is possible.
