HO Hin Ting
何衍婷

HO Hin Ting focuses on craft-making. She is interested in collecting small and inconspicuous objects from daily life as the main element of her works. She creates works not only inspired by the liveliness and vitality in nature but also based on her expanding memories and personal stories. While exploring ceramic, painting, drawing, glass and textiles in her earlier works, she finds herself particularly keen on observing and making miniatures. Thus, she finds ways to combine her personal collections and embroidery to make jewellery. She constantly develops her own methods in jewellery-making in order to make them more portable and interactive to remind people of the beauty of the natural environment and the importance of cherishing memories.

何衍婷專注於工藝製作。她喜歡收集日常生活中微型和不顯眼的東西作為她創作的主要元素。她的作品不但受到大自然中的生機和活力所啟發,更以個人的成長回憶和故事作依據。她在早期的作品中主要探索陶瓷、繪畫丶素描丶玻璃和紡織,她發現自己特別熱衷於觀察和製作微型的作品。因此,她通過結合個人的收藏和刺繡的工藝來建立及發展自己的首飾製作方式,並使其更具便攜性和互動性,從而以作品來提醒人們享受自然環境中的美和珍惜回憶的重要性。

If Time Could Go Back... talks about HO's memories with her mother who has passed away and her wish to recover the time she shared with her. 'While my mother was getting sick, her hair dropped one by one from her head. It seemed like my time with her was becoming less and less.' Therefore, HO collected and used her own hair to embroider every thread of their memories as a way to get back the time with her mother, especially the memories in her childhood, which was filled with a lot of happiness. Her work combines different collections of found objects that are related to those memories to become a series of brooches.

《若時光可倒流......》談及何衍婷與已離世母親昔日的點滴,並表現岀她對倒流回與母親相處的時光的渴望。「隨着媽媽患病時一條又一條的頭髮落下,我們能相處的時間彷佛一天比一天少。」何衍婷因此希望透過收集及運用自己的頭髮以刺繡的一針一線來重現和母親往日每一分每一秒的快樂時光,特別是那段無憂無慮的童年時間。她的作品結合了與這些回憶相關的收藏品,製作岀一系列的胸針。
