World-renowned jewellery artist Wallace Chan holds public exhibition in Hong Kong

HONG KONG.- Internationally renowned jewellery creator and innovator Wallace Chan is presenting Shapeshifter: The Multiverse of Wallace Chan – a public exhibition in Hong Kong, showcasing over 80 unique creations from 14th to 25th January 2019 at the Christie’s Gallery in Central. The exhibition, epitomising a multiverse of culture, craftsmanship and creativity, will take viewers on a journey through time and space with contemporary sculptures, wearable works of art, and pieces composed of the artist’s innovations over the past 45 years – including the much-celebrated Wallace Cut, titanium mastery, patented jade technology, Gemstone-Setting-Gemstone technique, Secret Abyss, and now, The Wallace Chan Porcelain.

“To me, jewellery is an art form. Ornamentation means little unless it amalgamates with the human body. I want my creations to trigger a provocative dialogue between form and function, between the individual and the universe, and between the past and the future. Many of my pieces also explore the eternal interdependence of life and death,” said Wallace Chan, who was the first contemporary Asian jewellery artist to hold a solo exhibition at the Gemstone Museum in Germany and the Capital Museum in Beijing, and also to exhibit his work at the Paris Biennale des Antiquaries and TEFAF Maastricht. Ever-curious in the unknown and undiscovered, Wallace does most of the research, experimentation and artisanal work himself, hence it often takes years to complete a piece.

Wallace started collecting porcelain artefacts in his 20s, and in 2011, in order to fulfill his creative visions, began experimenting on a material that is heavily rooted in culture and history, has rich colour, intense luster, strength, toughness and a contemporary spirit – The Wallace Chan Porcelain (see left image: A New Generation). The innovation was unveiled in the US in November 2018.

For the first time in Asia, members of the public are invited to view The Wallace Chan Porcelain, along with numerous other enchanting creations from the creator’s decades-long journey with gemstones, at this rare exhibition of jewellery art and innovation.
