(OUT OF) FLUX, 2016

Film: Anafelle Liu Art jewellery: Vann Kwok

From the installation, we can see the elements of sculpture art, abstract geometry, surreal paintings and films. This is a project that addresses the relationship between what occurs naturally and what is technically produced – Chance vs Choice / Control vs Chaos. Struggles between the natural and the artificial are evidenced through the process of making which involves machine (technology), traditional craftsmanship (humanity) and the participation of the natural environment (nature). The series also pushes the boundary of wearable art, which aims to explore the relationship between time, space and body.

Vann Kwok

Vann Kwok (b.1983) is an international award-winning jewellery designer from Hong Kong. With a background in fashion design, she extends her interest towards transforming objects into various mediums of art. In 2015, she finished her MA studies in London with a contemporary jewellery collection ‘Out of Flux’, which was awarded The ITS Jewellery Prize in Italy and Jewellery Award from The Arts Foundation in the UK in 2016. Since then Kwok’s work has been exhibited in London, Venice, Trieste, Amsterdam and Antwerp. The exposure to rich cultural diversity has led Kwok to constantly question what defines her and her designs, and prompted her to use her work to embrace the past, embody the present and inspire for the future. She decides to use jewellery as a platform to discuss heritage vs innovation, man vs machine and fashion vs art.
