Manny Yip

PROFILE

Manny Yip (b.1994, Hong Kong) received BAFA at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University. Her works capture senses of childhood innocence and female identity which are both reflections of her memories and yearnings. The abstraction and openness of the spatial interpretation in her works also speak for themselves. They are not merely an obsession with the past, but also an inviting space for viewers to freely associate with their own memories and imaginations.
She has been awarded the Reaching Out Award (2017) which included artist residency programmes in Bulgaria & Chicago, and Grant for Emerging Artists (2019). "Bit Of Memory" is a collaborative artwork which has been invited by The Hong Kong Art Festival for an interview(2021).Her artworks were collected by private collectors and exhibited in several cities, Hong Kong, United States and Europe. She has also been invited as a selected artist by commercial corporations and as a programme instructor for schools.
Participated exhibitions recently include “Art Basel”(Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong),  "So I say, “It’s a landscape painting.”"(Hong Kong Art Centre, 2021),  “A Place In Time” (The Fringe Club, 2020), “On the Brink of Borrowed Time: To Stay / To Flee” (Hong Kong Arts Centre,2020)

葉雯 (1994,生於香港) 2017年獲墨爾本皇家理工大學文學學士學位。作品捕捉了童年及過去的經驗,同時反映了她的嚮往及對女性身份的思考,當中的空間詮釋抽象性和開放性。
她獲得了「香港特別行政區政府獎學基金 - 外展體驗獎」(2017 年),包括在保加利亞和芝加哥的藝術家駐留項目,以及「香港藝術發局- 新苗資助」(2019 年)。 繪畫與新媒體合作作品《散記》受第50屆香港藝術節邀請採訪(2021年)。葉氏的作品被私人收藏家收藏,並在香港、美國和歐洲多個城市展出。她還被商業公司邀請為選定的藝術家和學校的課程講師。
近期參與的展覽包括“巴塞爾藝術展”(香港會議展覽中心)、「某年某地」 (藝穗會,2020),香港文學館「離留之間:文學 x 視藝展覽」(包氏畫廊,香港,2020)等。
