WAN Wing Ki, Vicky practises installation, mixed media, and ceramics.
WAN usually gets inspiration from her surroundings, daily practice, and Japanese philosophy. She believes art is a fragment of a person, in which people can reshape and re-organise. Therefore, her artworks mainly discuss and connect to the concept of self, serendipity, and the community. She is sensitive to emotions of others and herself. She believes her ceramics, as well as the heart-warming texture and down-to-earth character of clay, can tell stories and bring warmth and comfort to the audience.
In 2019, WAN went to Zurich University of the Arts in Switzerland on an exchange programme, majoring in ceramic moulding. Her ceramic works have been exhibited in the Apéro project and joint exhibitions in both Switzerland and Hong Kong.
If I Die Young explores the death that gives meaning to life. WAN Wing Ki, Vicky invites the viewers to join her dear plants’ funeral. The work embraces the aesthetics of death and pass their coffins to the next dear.
‘We share the wave and stone, the balloon and tinfoil, Hong Kong and Switzerland.’
