Opening Preview, Monday 28 August, 5:30pm.
All Welcome.

After having lived and studied in both China and New Zealand, Jun Xie currently approaching a cultural fusion through contemporary jewellery making.

'Something stays still, but it breathes when we blink.
Has a stone ever changed on itself? Or, the changes are only seen by those who observes?
With rooted memories of concrete jungles in my hometown, every little piece of the natural world here comes into my mind like a collision. I attempt to dig out the active nature of lifeless materials, explore ignored perspectives on what are too common for us and remodel large landscapes in small- scale for my jewellery.
If they are hard to be tracked alive, however, they are easy to be told dead.'
