    When the lock is hidden, the key becomes a connection between illusion and reality. When its role and function are blurred with the change of the key itself, the unknown completes the imagination. The curiosity and conjecture behind the key accumulates and expands, and when it is on the verge of some critical point, the key and the fantasy behind it collage a disorderly and ambiguous space.

    Born in a small city of China, Hankunyu “Vera” Wei started her metalsmithing life in Savannah College of Art and Design, then enrolled in Cranbrook Academy of Art.
    She is obsessed with digging the dark side of ordinary life, purifying the moments that are taken for granted and exploring their essence in the way of abstraction. Believed that the collision between different materials can stimulate the vitality of the work and the imagination and inspiration of creation, she has maximized the plasticity of materials through repeated attempts.
