Tim Yip: Blue – Art, Costumes and Memory
17 November, 2018 - 31 March, 2019
Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) and Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) (Lee Wai Lee) present “Tim Yip: Blue – Art, Costumes and Memory”. Lauded for his artistic direction and costume designs for the acclaimed film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (Oscar Academy Awards, 2001; British Academy of Film and Television Award, 2001), Tim Yip is a world-renowned visual artist, stage and film art director and costume designer who has over the decades left an imprint in art, culture and performance across the globe.
Drawing upon Tim Yip’s imagination, history and memory, the exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the history of his legendary career. The first stage of the exhibition will feature 21 costumes from Yip’s films and original creations, prominently focusing on the original costumes from “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” as well as “Red Cliff” and “The Banquet”. The second and the third stage of the exhibition will introduce a series of installations and film focused on Tim’s ongoing muse and creation, “Lili” – a wigged manikin posed as a human model that has been a focus in several of Tim Yip’s works. Representing a symbol of separate reality, the third and final stage of the exhibition will feature “Robot Lili”.
