'Ni Hao! - 10 Contemporary Jewellery Artists from Taiwan' 『 你好! 臺灣當代首飾創作聯展 』德國慕尼黑展覽 03.13 - 18. 2014 curated by Yu-Ping Lin (Rainey) and Zita Hsu
‘Hi’ (Ni Hao in Chinese) is a magic greeting word that initiates communication, just as a key that opens the door to a discussion, a bridge that crosses the boundaries of silence. Language very often goes beyond its linguistic meaning; however, it is also confined to linguistic competence. If there is a way that crosses the borders of language and speaks up one’s opinions through work piece, so that everyone, regardless of language, could feel the frequency of the world; that would be art.
‘Ni Hao! (hi) We are art jewellery artists from Taiwan!’
Mei-Fang Chiang dialogues the relationship between soul and work itself; Cai-Xuan (Molly) Wu and Heng Lee discover the beauty of knitting and embroidery in an unconventional way; Wen-Miao Yah and Yu-Ping Lin develop the Origami and paper cutting in structural dramatic forms; Shih-Dea (Deborah) Tseng and Ying-Hsun (Zita) Hsu reveal the vague and abstract spirit of ‘Zen’ in the perceptions of touch and vision; Han-Chieh (Joy) Chuang, Ying-Hsiu Chen and Yung-Huei Chao combine the inspiration from Mother Nature with the memory toward motherland.
‘Ten jewellery artists come from the same land, ten storytellers looking forward to a whole new page in their lives.’
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
