Intro
Yip Hiu Tung, graduating student from Alchimia’s MFA in Jewellery and Body Ornament, presents Look Gently, her graduation exhibition. Her work spins an intimate discussion about the vulnerability and awkwardness one may experience in human interactions and proposes a witty solution to such circumstances.

Artist list

Yip Hiu Tung
This morning, a young person, walking briskly along the eastern side of Piazza Santo Spirito and passing in front of me, was brought to a stop by the sight of a fluffy, tentacled anemone on the lapel of Ms. Y., of Hong Kong. It took the whole of 7 seconds for the pedestrian’s gaze to untangle itself from the rainbow tufts that lay clenched there. Eventually, they walked on, convinced of having been present to something, but in reality never having met the eyes of Ms Y., who for her part had enjoyed that unfulfilled encounter tremendously. Like two ships in the night, they had merely guessed the possibility of one another’s existence.
/ From diary notes of Ben Lignel, guest teacher, Alchimia.


Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School is pleased to present Look Gently, a solo exhibition by Yip Hiu Tung, graduating student from the school’s MFA in Jewellery and Body Ornament. From the 2nd to 3rd March 2018, Hiu Tung will be showing her series of jewellery pieces and images in Studio Greci, Florence, Italy.
 
Look Gently consists of a series of works exploring the insecurity and vulnerability brought on by human interaction and relationships. Drawing some of her inspirations from the attraction and defence mechanisms of animals in the wild, Hiu Tung deals with these sentiments with a sense of humour: the eyespot mimicry of owl butterflies and the colourful feathers of rollers provide cues for the artist’s own bait and escape strategies.

You are warmly invited to come and fall into Hiu Tung's collection of traps, to experience the discomfort and tenderness sparked off by these colourful deceits.
 
 
Alchimia contemporary jewellery school is directed by Lucia Massei. Found in 1998, the school sits at the heart of renaissance; Florence, Italy. Alchimia’s objective is to teach students to express their creativity through contemporary jewellery, developing high-quality technical and theoretical skills.
