Intro
CHAxART is proud to present Jieyi Sun’s solo exhibition, ‘Belongings’, in collaboration with guest curator Minhong Yu. The exhibition revisits familiar sites and sentiments of 2020 when the ranging pandemic encompassed us all, and how the artist, being in a foreign land vacuumed by lockdown, found air in art.

Jieyi Sun
When physical movements were replaced by physical distancing, Jieyi Sun embarked on a journey inward, a journey of jewellery. Her process of making jewellery surprisingly and simultaneously, becomes a process of self-healing, therapy with (creating) belongings. One piece a day, one note for each piece: crystalizing ‘the feeling’ into jewellery, and then cradling it with an affective footnote. 36 pieces of jewellery, piece together her inner scenery tinted with emotion, strength, and poetry; a visual diary of personal belongings, which is also physical evidence embodying her heart and hand, in the effort to cope with external force as an individual in isolation. 

During the lockdown, she searched all over the place at home, for materials, objects previously collected yet somehow forgotten, and ‘the feeling’ as a source of inspiration. Her looking for the feeling, essentially, is looking for a meaning, a part of self-lost elsewhere, a comfort to be passed on, from jewellery to friends and families on the other side of the world.
