Intro
Zeyun had set up a 30-day challenge for herself to transform these waste materials into jewellery items as many as she can, which are shown in this exhibition. Setting aside the one masterpiece that is reserved for the blind auction, the rest of the collection is sold at a fixed price. All proceedings from this collection during the exhibition will be donated to Green Council.

Artist list

Zeyun Chen
By combining traditional craftsmanship with her understanding of design, Zeyun hopes to reconstruct waste and subvert the established common understanding of waste.

Zeyun finds that waste and artwork are just a fine line apart. By this collection Redefine Waste, she wishes to breakthrough this distinction. In the traditional sense, waste and artwork can be of great difference. Take Hong Kong for example, limited space and infinite waste has been such a difficult case.

The wastes used in this series are mainly household debris (e.g. used clothes, old newspaper, courier boxes, plastic bottles, takeaway bags from fast-food outlets). And for jewellery companies, much space and money are withheld by outdated designs. The power usage required for re-casting is also for their pains. For this collection, Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group is very generous to have donated 26 pieces of dated gold accessories for transformation. To Zeyun, there are many different ways she can do the transformation with low power usage, e.g. by hammering, cutting, riveting, and re-constructing the materials. In this Redefine Waste collection, every piece of work is made from collected waste materials.
