About the Exhibition

 Marking the artist’s first large-scale solo exhibition in Hong Kong, “Tim Yip: Blue – Art, Costumes and Memory” captures over 30 years of artistic evolution of the award-winning Tim Yip. Lauded for his artistic direction and costume designs for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (Oscar Academy Awards; British Academy of Film and Television Award), Tim Yip is a world-renowned visual artist, stage and film art director and costume designer who has over the years left an imprint in art, culture and performance across the globe.

 

“Blue” is the starting point for this exhibition: it plays on ideas and symbolisation from nature of human imagination to the depths of the subconscious mind, from collective history to human memory. The exhibition, curated by Mark Holborn, is separated into 3 stages, bringing to life Tim Yip’s multidisciplinary works along with his collaborations with some of the world’s best filmmakers.

As a world-renowned visual artist, costume designer, and art director for stage and film, Tim Yip continuously seeks to explore and communicate his aesthetic concept of “New Orientalism”, drawing on ancient culture as a means to inspire the future. He works widely in contemporary art, costume, theatre, film, literature, and other creative fields. In 2001, Tim won the Oscar for Best Art Direction, and British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award for Best Costume Design for the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, becoming the first Chinese person to receive these accolades.

Over the past 16 years, Tim has held special exhibitions in Taiwan, France, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United States. In addition, his works have been featured in the New York International Asian Art Fair and other significant arts events worldwide.
