鄧曉琪

TANG Hiu Ki, Kate experiments with digital illustration, graphic design, and jewellery. During a study exchange in Germany, she was inspired and started to develop her ideas on contemporary jewellery. She enjoys pushing the limits of materials in jewellery making and using daily objects instead of refined metals and stones. She believes jewelleries are not just decorative objects for bodies and keeps questioning the relationship between the wearables and the wearers, in order to find ways to tell stories.

鄧曉琪的藝術實踐包括數碼插畫、平面設計及珠寶設計。她在德國的一次學習交流中受到了啓發,並開始發展自己對當代珠寶設計的想法。她喜歡在珠寶製作中突破材料的極限,運用日常物品,而非精煉的金屬和石頭。她認為珠寶不僅僅是身體的裝飾品,更是一種講述故事的方式,她一直在反思配飾和佩戴者之間的關係。

I Have Never Thought That Black Means Sadness recalls an intimate story about the colour black. 

 

‘Black is my favourite colour, and I really enjoy every dark, silent night. Before I went to Europe and lived there for one year, I have never thought that black could mean sadness. During the wintertime, the sun goes down very early in Europe, and everywhere becomes empty and dark when the night falls. My time there made me realise the reason why people always love to have gatherings and parties in Europe. It might be because people feel lonely and sad during the night time. I want to use my film camera to capture as much light as possible in different places in the darkness, just like how people look for warmth during every long, lonely night.’
