trans.for.ma.tion peony·yip·solo·exhibition

Art Projects Gallery is delighted to present Hong Kong artist Peony Yip’s debut solo exhibition titled “Trnsformation”.

Peony is inspired by the notion of continuous change -

fascinated not only by the end result of metamorphosis but also

in the process of the transformation. In this solo exhibition, she

explores the relationship between humans and nature and puts

forward her vision of the transformation from former to the latter.

Imagining a world where human goes through an evolutionary process to finally become a part of nature, Peony’s

“Transformation” series portray the different stages of a girl’s transformation back to nature as a butterfly, symbolic of people being reborn and at one with nature again.

In the “Transformation Zodiac” series, Peony portrays insects (as a representation of nature) transformed into the twelve

Zodiac beings, all fully evolved with their ubiquitous physical attributes and characteristics.

Peony Yip was born in Jamaica in 1990 where she lived for 14

years before moving back to Hong Kong in 2005. She graduated

from the Hong Kong Design Institute with a Higher Diploma in

Graphic Information Design in 2010 and has participated in

various group exhibitions since 2012 before her current debut solo exhibition at Art Projects Gallery.

變·化 葉莎沙個展

藝途畫廊呈獻香港藝術家葉莎沙的首度個展《變·化》。

葉莎沙從大自然的不斷變化獲得啟發--不僅對變化的最終形態 所著迷,也對變化的過程所吸引。在這次個展,她試圖探索人類 與大自然之間的關係,展示她對人類變化為自然的想像。

幻想一個世界,由人類通過進化過程,最終成為大自然的一部分, 莎沙的《變.化》系列作品描繪了一個少女變形成為蝴蝶回歸大 自然的不同階段,有如人類重生的象徵,與大自然融為一體。

在《變.化--星座》系列作品中,莎沙試圖描繪昆蟲(作為大 自然的象徵)轉化成十二星座,充分體現昆蟲的外在特徵和個性, 完美進化成十二星座的化身。

葉莎沙於1990年出生於牙買加,於當地生活了14年,直至2005 年返回香港定居。於2010年畢業於香港知專設計學院獲得視覺 咨詢設計高級文憑,並在此次藝途畫廊個展之前,自2012年以 來參加過各個連展。

Artist’s Statement

The series portrays the inevitability of change. Humanity’s idea of death is simply another part of the process that we call

life. Death is no more to be feared than Birth, Love or Growth.

Although the fear of Death has been at the root of all of our great discoveries and accomplishments, what is sometimes forgotten is that discovery itself is not as important as what is done with

what is discovered. Through discoveries I believe we humans

have taken greatly from what belongs to the Earth and I would love to live a world where we can be rebirthed back into nature

itself.

藝術家自述 這一系列作品描繪变化的必然性。人類對死亡的概念,必然反映 著人生的另一個过程,我們稱之為生命。死亡未必比出生、愛或 成長來的可怕。雖然死亡的恐懼一直是我們偉大發現和成就的根 源,然而常常被人們所忽略的是發現事後,人們是怎麼處理此發 現的。我相信人們在發現的過程中,正大大的剝削著屬於地球的 資源;因此,我希望可以生活在一個能讓我重生,回歸大自然本 身的世界裏。
