BIOGRAPHY (ENG)
(within 2000 Characters)
My current practice involves an on-going process of exploration and reconstruction of identity – of personal and of modern and contemporary objects. My latest set of work, Daily Practice - The Healing consists of: a wall-mounted selection of recognisable daily objects with surface treatment, deformed gallery furniture, presented with photographic documentation of the surface treatment, a set of 3D-printed box pendants (‘Hidden Collection (2)’), and a book of fragmented ‘stories’ (Facebook posts). They portray the interlacing process of formation and deformation of consciousness and identities; each complements the other, decodes a secluded information flow in today’s world.

My practice in contemporary jewellery bases on experimentations with materials and displaying methods of jewellery and objects. In light of the attempts by jewellers to develop jewellery as a form of emotional expression and conceptual metaphor, I attempt to concretise the intimate relationship between three parties: objects worn as jewellery, the wearer, and the viewer.

Literature, being another creative medium, helps to record the changing cultural tastes and behaviours in a personal lens. Through adopting the role of a ‘story-collector’, I initiate encounters, dialogues, and record them in the form of short stories, as a way of escaping from familiarities.
