Yilin Tong: Re-contour


Yilin Tong

A series of large body jewelries captures the contour in time and expresses the beauty in line.

Using brass wire to outline the contour of the objects in Chinese history, this collection depicts vanishment, emptiness and the supreme power of enforcement. By reshaping the form, reconstructing the the framework and employing transparent media, this collection gently implements new gestures to body, yet brutally evokes our resistance to social inequality on various levels such as gender, kinship, politics, as well as our regret for the unenlightened dynasties.
