Intro
Themed by “Chinese Mythology”, this exhibition approaches China's national character via myths and, through their creation(s) of contemporary art jewelry, expresses each artist’s exploration of cosmology, philosophical speculation, religion, natural environment, folk customs, personal ideal, view of love, or concept of Chinese traditional view of family bond. From 58 artists at home and abroad, who submitted 156 works in total, the “Chinese Mythology” organizing committee has selected 35 artists, with 74 works to enter the exhibition.

In terms of mythology, jewelry exists in the unique form of witchcraft-weapons: Tang Monk's Incantation of the Golden Hoop (Magic Headband), Nezha's Sky-earth loop and Red Strapping ribbon, Princess Iron-fan's palm leaf fan, etc. In terms of jewelry, from mythology, we can see traces of an individual, or an entire history of civilization. “The bewildering mythology system, the bizarre legends, and the true-to-life hero images” - they all intentionally or secretly give meaning to life and are linked to individuals' personal 'myths'. Jewels are worn next to skin to be nourished with our own lives, or embedded in our bodies by piercing, to express the expectation and identity of the self, or the joys and sorrows of life.

If we use contemporary jewelry language to show Chinese mythology, and our spirit and will to control the development of Chinese mythology, the new myths generated thereby will definitely affect the next civilization.

It is the "first five-year plan” of Vonmo, which involves a theme exhibition each year and lasts for five consecutive years. The theme of the second exhibition will be announced at the opening ceremony on Aug. 8, 2020, please stay tuned.
