Artist Statement

Everybody has their own jewellery, but not everyone realises that they have already worn it. My work pushes the boundaries of jewellery by re-thinking , re-defining and re-interpreting the definition of jewellery design. I started questioning myself what is the meaning of jewellery? I travelled around the world to open up my horizon. From place to place, one footstep after another, it has a lot of meanings, stories and memories. During my travels, I always recorded and collected my memories from the places I visited by using films, sounds, diary, photographs and found objects. All these things have a strong emotional and physical relationship. The memory that is precious, is very personal and individual. It seems I wear it, not on my body but in my mind. A memory can be defined in my view as a piece of jewellery that is still a part of me and with me all the time. My work is divided into two parts, which are 'Jewellery Is At My Feet' and 'Jewellery Is At My Feet, The Show Is Yours'. In the first part, my works challenge a viewer's perception in terms of jewellery by using films and found objects as the raw material to create a piece of memory. In 'Jewellery Is At My Feet, The Show Is Yours', I attempted to share my concept with other people by launching a campaign and let them discover their own jewellery, which is hidden in their lives.
