    Steel, rubber

    The combination of metal and rubber creates a specific distance from the audience that is between near and far. While it separates outsiders, it keeps an area where it hovers and struggles with itself. The torture and examination of self like iron wires grows on the iron board. The contradictions and entanglements in my heart are isolated from the outside world, even refusing myself, in a form of self-protection. All attempts are accompanied by pain, and all contact means refusal.

    This work is available for pre-order, with anticipated availability date of July 1. Buyers will be contacted to complete payment when the work is available for purchase and pick up.

    Item is located in Troy, MI. Local pickup available. Shipping is unavailable.

    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.
