Vaan Ip’s works have been featured in the Stratagems in Architecture Hong Kong in Venice. The exhibition is a response to and continuation of The 15th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition. By bringing the works showcased by a group of talented Hong Kong young architects and artists at the Biennale back to the community. The exhibition is also one of the celebratory events for the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Along with participating artists Stanley Siu, So Kwok-kin, Mary Grace Chiu, Sunny Yung, Tony Ip, Kenneth Tse, Angus Ngai, Maggie Ma, Aden Chan, Jason Tang, Nikki Ho, Calvin Chan, Billy Chan, Chan Sim, Tang Kwok-hin and Paul Yip, Vaan Ip showcased his iconic structured sculptures inspired by his hometown Hong Kong.
Vaan explores the relationship among people, himself and his home city Hong Kong. His paintings intersect with his sense of the city and his childhood memories. The works not only convey the artist´s feelings, but resonate with his audience. Vaan’s visual elements depict the characteristics of a crowded city – both unity and structure. He also encourages the audience to reflect on the idea of space in all its forms.
Inspired by his fast-paced home, Vaan Ip created the “Lost City” series. His style presents the complexity of the city. People are caught up by these confined walls, trapped by societal expectations and left lost. Everyone is busy making a living that they forget the true m¬eaning of life – to live life. The reality of time is short-lived and we should not forget our dreams. Vaan Ip captures a journey of relaxation, inviting people to let go of the worries of the world and to let the mind wander, explore and find paradise.
